I have tried these on both Mac and Linux and they behave the same, and
that is to do nothing. They don't error, but just return.
create-directory returns the multiple values: path of the supposedly new
directory and nil:
(create-directory "/home/jsa/TEST") => #p"/home/jsa/TEST", NIL
But the directory isn't created. I also haven't found what the MODE
keyword is supposed to be or do.
directory returns nil whether or not the directory given exists:
(directory "/home/jsa") => nil
(directory "/gobbledegook") => nil
I also couldn't find the meaning of the various keywords to this either,
but tried various permutations of :files t, :directories t, etc. with no
I tried both with path syntax input as well: #p"/home/jsa/TEST",
#p"/home/jsa", etc. Nothing.
Anyone have any ideas??
