Machine-Type': Dolphin'
NSCREATEDIRECTORY({phylex':}<lisp>sources>) will create a new directory lisp>sources even if one already exists.  Should either be a no-op or raise an exception.'
Serious, since Lisp cannot interpret the resulting directory hodge-podge.'

In-reply-to':''s message of 21 Mar 84 12':13':29 PST (Wednesday)'
The latest version of NSFILING fixes these two bugs. Attempts to create a directory some of whose intermediate directories do not exist, and attempts to create a directory that already exists, generate BAD FILE NAME errors.'
