path-namestring

Arguments: filespec

This function returns the namestring of the pathname which includes the path portion of filespec (with pathname-name or pathname-type both nil). On Windows, the result may include pathname-host and pathname-device information. That is, this function returns the result of applying namestring to path-pathname:

(namestring (path-pathname filespec))

filespec should be a Common Lisp pathname designator, that is a pathname, a string naming a pathname, or a stream open to a file.

Examples

(path-pathname "/foo/bar/baz.cl") RETURNS #p"/foo/bar/"
(path-namestring "/foo/bar/baz.cl") RETURNS "/foo/bar/"

;; On Windows:

(path-pathname "d:/foo/bar/baz.cl") RETURNS #p"d:\\foo\\bar\\"
(path-namestring "d:/foo/bar/baz.cl") RETURNS "d:\\foo\\bar\\"
(path-pathname "//hobart/c/tmp/foo.cl") RETURNS #p"\\\\hobart\\c\\tmp\\"
(path-namestring "//hobart/c/tmp/foo.cl") RETURNS "\\\\hobart\\c\\tmp\\"
