I don't understand that.  The SCM socket:bind, socket:connect, and
socket-name:port-number procedures all expose port numbers, and I don't
understand how you can implement TFTP without knowing about them.

Are you momentarily confusing port numbers with file descriptors?

I quite like it, but it doesn't meet my requirements.  I'll look into
cutting it down so it does.

If you have ever wondered if you are in hell,         John Cowan
it has been said, then you are on a well-traveled     http://www.ccil.org/~cowan
road of spiritual inquiry.  If you are absolutely     cowan@x
sure you are in hell, however, then you must be
on the Cross Bronx Expressway.          --Alan Feuer, NYTimes, 2002-09-20
