It appears that GCL doesn't support Tilde Slash in FORMAT (http://www.lispworks.com/documentation/lw50/CLHS/Body/22_ced.htm).

I tried with the tarball labeled 2.6.12 and dated 2014 on the download page which is the most recent tarball from what I can tell. I wasn't able to build from Git so I don't know if this has been implemented in the meantime.


>(format t "~/pprint-linear/~%" '(1 2 3))

Fast links are on: do (si::use-fast-links nil) for debugging
Signalled by FORMAT.
Condition in FORMAT [or a callee]: INTERNAL-SIMPLE-ERROR: Format error: illegal directive.
