Allegro CL version 8.1
Unrevised from 8.0 to 8.1.
8.0 version

file-system-info

Arguments: device-name

Returns a plist containing miscellaneous information about a particular filesystem. device-name may be a character (such as #\C); a string ("C" or "C:"); or a symbol (:c), in which case the printname will be used. If the information cannot be determined for any reason, nil is returned. Typically, if device-name names a CD drive whose door is open or which does not contain a CD, or a floppy drive without a floppy, nil is returned.

A plist is a list with an even number of elements where the 1st, 3rd, etc. elements are labels, often keywords, and the 2nd, 4th, etc. elements are values associated with the corresponding label.

This function is defined in the :winapi module. If that module is not loaded, evaluate (require :winapi). This function is available on Windows machines only. In releases prior to 7.0, the symbol naming this function was exported from the common-graphics package. Starting in release 7.0, it is exported only from the windows package.
