find-file start location; where is it ?
The find-file(2) start location is defined as follows:-
Running under Microsoft Windows or UNIX, using an icon launch, then it may become frustrating that the start location is always C:\Program Files\JASSPA\MicroEmacs (Microsoft windows) or /usr/local/bin (UNIX) this is simply resolved by starting the executable with the -c option, as defined by me(1). The -c option starts the editor with the last editing session, this is typically where a user will want to commence an editing session.
If the -c approach is not acceptable, then it is worth defining the environment variable $HOME within the start up script, or in the users environment. Using find-file with tilde (~) implies that the directory start path is $HOME.
