ANSI Common Lisp 19 Filenames 19.4 Dictionary of Filenames
- Arguments and Values:
pathname - a pathname designator.
wildcard - a designator for a wild pathname.
generalized-boolean - a generalized boolean.
pathname-match-p returns true if
pathname matches wildcard, otherwise nil. The
matching rules are implementation-defined but should be consistent with
directory. Missing components of wildcard default to :wild.
It is valid for pathname to be a wild pathname;
a wildcard field in pathname only matches a
wildcard field in wildcard (i.e.,
pathname-match-p is not commutative).
It is valid for wildcard to be a non-wild pathname.
- Exceptional Situations:
If pathname or wildcard is not a pathname, string,
or stream associated with a file an error of type type-error is signaled.
