====== Function LOAD-LOGICAL-PATHNAME-TRANSLATIONS ====== ====Syntax==== * **load-logical-pathname-translations** //host// → //just-loaded// ====Arguments and Values==== * //host// - a //[[CL:Glossary:string]]//. * //just-loaded// - a //[[CL:Glossary:generalized boolean]]//. ====Description==== Searches for and loads the definition of a //[[CL:Glossary:logical host]]// named //host//, if it is not already defined. The specific nature of the search is //[[CL:Glossary:implementation-defined]]//. If the //host// is already defined, no attempt to find or load a definition is attempted, and //[[CL:Glossary:false]]// is returned. If the //host// is not already defined, but a definition is successfully found and loaded, //[[CL:Glossary:true]]// is returned. Otherwise, an error is signaled. ====Examples==== <blockquote> (translate-logical-pathname "hacks:weather;barometer.lisp.newest") <e>Error: The logical host HACKS is not defined.</e> (load-logical-pathname-translations "HACKS") <o>;; Loading SYS:SITE;HACKS.TRANSLATIONS ;; Loading done. </o> <r>//[[CL:Glossary:true]]// </r> (translate-logical-pathname "hacks:weather;barometer.lisp.newest") <r>#P"HELIUM:[SHARED.HACKS.WEATHER]BAROMETER.LSP;0" </r> (load-logical-pathname-translations "HACKS") <r>//[[CL:Glossary:false]]//</r> </blockquote> ====Affected By==== None. ====Exceptional Situations==== If no definition is found, an error of type **[[CL:Types:error]]** is signaled. ====See Also==== * **[[CL:Types:logical-pathname|System Class LOGICAL-PATHNAME]]** ====Notes==== //[[CL:Glossary:Logical pathname]]// definitions will be created not just by //[[CL:Glossary:implementor|implementors]]// but also by //[[CL:Glossary:programmers]]//. As such, it is important that the search strategy be documented. For example, an //[[CL:Glossary:implementation]]// might define that the definition of a //host// is to be found in a file called ''/host/.translations'' in some specifically named directory. \issue{PATHNAME-LOGICAL:ADD}
