#1106 new enhancement

.file.lisp rather than file.lisp~

It would be useful to have the option to have backup file copies saved as invisible .file.lisp (rather than file.lisp~). This would de-clutter the FS interface.

Better still, save as .nfile.lisp, so a reap generation count could be set (pseudo file versioning). Hence file modifications be kept.


Although OSX Timemachine etc can be used to save some history, there is no connection between file save and when a backup is made. Building a version system into CCL's IDE would guarantee that nothing is lost.
