    Bad argument type: FILE: nil

    I am running a lisp on a new 64-bit computer. Nothing has changed from my old computer.... a 32-bit. All files are exactly the same and yet when i try and run one of my lisp routines I get this error about Bad Argument type File:nil... There was a previous post about this which had a link but the link doesn't work so I can't see the reply for help. Anyone have any ideas?

    The technical explanation for the error as explained by lisp guru Lee Mac.

    A function requiring a file descriptor argument has been passed an argument of incorrect data type with the value noted in the error message. Usually a result of passing princ, prin1 or print an invalid second argument.
