Portable pathname library for Common Lisp

CL-FAD (for "Files and Directories") is a thin layer atop Common Lisp's standard pathname functions. It is intended to provide some unification between current CL implementations on Windows, OS X, Linux, and Unix. Most of the code was written by Peter Seibel for his book Practical Common Lisp.


Install the latest version of cl-fad as follows:

guix install cl-fad

Or install a particular version:

guix install cl-fad@0.7.6-1.3f4d32d

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
