Hello my name is jo, 
I have reached to chapter 12 examples and had trouble execute the code with-open-file
to make temporal file name "data.txt"

code:
(with-open-file (my-stream "data.txt" :direction :output)
  (print "my data" my-stream))

It seems that the path of the data.txt needs to be modified as "/tmp/data.txt".

Does anyone knows why? 

Anyway, hope it's helpful.

I don't need to do that. I mean I evaluated the code you pasted and
got a file called data.txt in my working directory.

What are the permissions for the current working directory from where
you are running this?

Hi Jojo

 

Not many, if any, other people on this list any more.

 

I suggest going to www.reddit.com/r/lisp and posting your question there.
