Re: "I wish someone would make a proposal
for generic pathnames. I don't think they ever got the consideration
There are several issues waiting a "pathname" committee to study them
further. They include:
PATHNAME-COMPONENT-CASE, PATHNAME-LOGICAL, PATHNAME-SUBDIRECTORY-LIST,
PATHNAME-SYNTAX-ERROR-TIME, PATHNAME-WILD, STREAM-CAPABILITIES,
Frankly, I don't know what "generic" pathnames are, so I don't know how I
could have considered them. Are they the same thing as "logical" pathnames?
