$MENAME - MicroEmacs user name
$LOGNAME - System user name (UNIX)
$MENAME is an environment variable which may be used to initialize the MicroEmacs '06 environment for a given user. At start-up, if $MENAME is defined then the user's configuration and history file "name.erf" is located and read, where name is the variable value. The environment variable is used to initialise the $user-name(5) variable.
Where the user name has been specified on the command line using the -u option to me(1) then the environment variable is ignored and -u option takes precedence.
Within Microsoft Windows environments, if login is enabled then the users login name is automatically used as the first choice login name. No environment variables need to be set. If login is not enabled then one of the aforementioned methods should be used.
In Microsoft Windows environments, $LOGNAME is sometimes defined.
The three variables must be defined before start-up for them to have any effect.
