SBCL, ASDF, Windows XP and Symlinks

Postby schoppenhauer » Wed Aug 13, 2008 1:15 pm

Under Linux, ASDF is searching for .asd-Files or Symlinks to .asd-Files in all Directories in asdf:*central-registry*. Under Windows XP, with SBCL and ASDF, I dont know how to make "Symlinks". Windows has its .lnk-Link-Files, but these seem not to be recognized, and so I have to put all directories into asdf:*central-registry*. I would like a Directory with Links to .asd-Files better.
I am not really often working under Windows (only for porting-issues), so I dont know how to do this - or if this is possible anyway.
Sorry for my bad english.

I use the method listed on http://www.cliki.net/asdf under the heading "Alternative Sysdef Search functionality". This sidesteps the whole symlinks issue entirely and works well for me when I need to use a Windows machine, although I suspect it may become a little slow if you have a large number of systems on your computer.

Thank you. It does automatically what I have been doing "manually" every time, but its still better. Maybe it is possible to create a system-definition-function that is aware of windows' .lnk-Files. Maybe I will try this.
