as suggested by Xach on #lisp I'm posting a small patch, hoping that it will be applied
to the sbcl sources.
I'd like to be able to read the inode number from the dirent structures, as stat()ing a
directory in ascending inode order is *much* faster than doing that unsorted.
(Disclaimer: depends on OS, filesystem, and directory layout, of course. YMMV, but I've
seen differences of 2x to 4x for ext3.)
So getting the d_ino member available would help for directory-reading, massive I/O
This is my second project with Lisp, and my first SBCL/ASDF change ... so please be
gentle if that doesn't work this way, and help me.
Versioning your /etc, /home or even your whole installation?
Try fsvs (fsvs.tigris.org)!
