Hello,

I'm running CCL on Windows and I would like to access files on the Windows
network.

I can map the network folder to a local drive (such as Z:).  This works
fine.

However, I am curious if I can directly specify the path to the network
folder. Issuing

(directory "//abc/xyz/*")

gives NIL


CCL doesn't know about UNC-style pathnames, so your strategy of mapping the
network folder to a drive letter is the way to go.

http://trac.clozure.com/ccl/ticket/1086 is a fairly old ticket requesting
that ccl be enhanced to support UNC pathnames.

It might be worthwhile to make a GitHub issue for this if you want.


Thanks,

I'll wait for CCL to move to github and raise the issue.
