Hi Laurent,

back to your original mail:

It seems the internal symbol is '__xstat'.

>From "/usr/include/x86_64-linux-gnu/sys/stat.h":

   __extern_inline int
   __NTH (stat (__const char *__path, struct stat *__statbuf))
     return __xstat (_STAT_VER, __path, __statbuf);

That's a pity, because it makes it rather unportable.

BTW, instead of using 'line', 'split' and 'pack' in

>    (mapcar pack

>             (line) )
>          " " ) ) )

and later parsing it with 'hex' and 'format', you could read it

(in (list "stat" "-c" "%f %s %u %g %h %i %X %Y %Z" Path)
      (link (hex (till " "))
      (do 8
         (link (read)) ) ) ) )
