19.2.2.4.2 Restrictions on Examining a Pathname Device Component

The device might be a string, :wild, :unspecific, or nil.

Note that :wild might result from an attempt to read1 the pathname component, even though portable programs are restricted from writing1 such a component value; see Section 19.2.2.3 Restrictions on Wildcard Pathnames and Section 19.2.2.5 Restrictions on Constructing Pathnames.
