Issue: LOAD-TRUENAME (Version 3)
I approve this version. I checked it against the amendment
I had proposed.
In the example section,
(LOAD (MERGE-PATHNAMES MODULE-NAME *LOAD-TRUENAME*))))
(LOAD (MERGE-PATHNAMES MODULE-NAME *LOAD-PATHNAME*))))
That's the whole reason for the amendment to add *LOAD-PATHNAME*!
The discussion section ought to include someone's suggestion that all
these variables could be replaced by *LOAD-STREAM* and
*COMPILE-FILE-STREAM*, combined with the existing PATHNAME and TRUENAME
functions. It should also include someone else's suggestion that those
two variables could be replaced by *STANDARD-INPUT*. I think there was
some argument against allowing access to the stream that convinced me to
support this proposal instead, but that other suggestion ought to be
given fair representation.
