[HARLEQUIN][Common Lisp HyperSpec (TM)] [Previous][Up][Next] The Pathname Version Component

Corresponds to the ``version number'' concept in many host file systems.

The version is either a positive integer or a symbol from the following list: nil, :wild, :unspecific, or :newest (refers to the largest version number that already exists in the file system when reading a file, or to a version number greater than any already existing in the file system when writing a new file). Implementations can define other special version symbols.
