#492 closed enhancement (worksforme)

Some more posixunix.scm functions

Description

I wrote some functions that Ugarit needed, that the posix unit lacked.

source:release/4/ugarit/trunk/posixextras.scm

They're ruthlessly based on other similar functions in posixunix.scm

Would they be welcome in posixunix.scm? If so, feel free to have them. Should they just be omitted in posixwin.scm, or stubs written, or equivalent functionality chosen?

Very nice. I will review these and add what appears useful.

Shouldn't this ticked be closed now that we have http://wiki.call-cc.org/eggref/4/posix-extras ?

Felix: according to Jim and Alaric (via IRC), this ticket can be closed if you think the current situation is ok (i.e., having posix-extras as an egg).

I removed change-file-times because file-modification-time has a setter, but Alaric needs to set atime and there is no file-access-time setter. This is a note to myself to implement one in the egg

Implemented file-access-times setter and reimplemented change-file-times
