Hello Matthew,

I think I have found the issue.

The function seem to be a low level lisp functionality, and the code is
ccl/level-1/l1-streams : (defun open (filename &key (direction :input) ....
number 5862.

If we see below, inside the function, we can see the call to the function
make-file-stream, this function is defined inside the ccl/level-1/l1-sysio
(defun make-file-stream (filename .... line 761

For what I understand, it verify if it is "if-exists" or
If we are in the case of if-exists and when the keyword follow is
":supersede" do the action for supersede, but it seem that :rename are not
implemented ?

In result of that if I do : (open "foo" :if-exists :supersede :direction
and replace :rename by :supersede, (foo already exist in directory),

I have a new foo created and the old renamed but temporarily (I think that
follow the standard), and deleted at the end (if we use the close function).

foo the new file
46077910582870627.tem the old temporarily renamed file

if I'm right, I will impement here :rename, without remove the old file,
rename-and-delete shall do that ?), I propose for example

foo the new file
foo.bak the old

What do you think ?

Thank you
