communication between TI and Symbolics

    Regarding the mail recently about file access
    between Symbolics machines and Explorers: 

    There was a patch which came with the SLUG
    library tapes about two years ago which 
    took care of some of this: 

    It was on the 3rd tape with a pathname of
    of tape3>symbolics>hacks>lmiti-pathname-patch.lisp
    for those of you who might have the tapes laying around.

    It was written I think by Richard Lamson (formerly of Symbolics).

    It is about 7000 bytes of code.


If this is the same hack I've seen, it's ancient and doesn't even compile in
the current (7.2 or later) system, because the file system interfaces have
changed.  But I may be wrong; if there is a current version of this particular
hack, I'd like to know about it.
