1. When I tried to ^x^f a file on the Vax while logged into
MC the Lispm asked me to log will name and password or just
password. Because my ITS name is the same as my Unix name I
just typed in my password (carriage return) but the Lispm just
prompted me for my name/password again. Typing both worked.
Are you sure they are the same? Remember that case matters to unix,
so NEVES wouldn't do for neves.
You were right about case.
2. When I finally got logged in I tried finding my login file
to test things out. I ^x^fed /usr/neves/.login . The lispm
for some reason wanted to put some file name in front of the
".login" and produced buffer.login I believe. Periods can be
part of Unix file names and don't have the special significance
that they do in Tops-20 (i.e. seperating name and extention).
Well, the lisp machine wants to know about foo.lisp as two separate
components. Leading dots could be part of the filename.
I don't understand this. Are you telling me that if I have a file
on UNIX that starts with a "." I'm screwed?
Perhaps you want to change FS:*DEFAULTS-ARE-PER-HOST*?
I don't know what this does and I couldn't tell from the
comment above the defvar. I tried setting it to T which didn't
seem to make any difference to the defaults I got.
Defaulting does not work the same way on unix on the lisp machine.
