Re: Useful Macro for doing I/O in MacLISP under New-i/o
this brings to mind an earlier discussion with JONL about the
need to have LISP keep some global list of open files.
A Two suggestions for discussion. Could I have some comments about why they
are not the 'right' thing or what tradeoffs are involved, etc.
 (STATUS ACTIVEFILES) => might return a list of all open new-i/o file
objects. Shouldn't mention anything being UREAD since that's handled
in other ways.
This would let people know if files were open and optionally map down
them closing them.
