username-to-home-directory

Arguments: name

On UNIX, name must be a string. This function returns a pathname with the directory component holding the named user's home directory. Returns nil if name is not recognized by the system.

On Windows, name "~" causes the system to poll the HOME environment variable. If that variable has a value, it is returned. "C:\\" is returned if HOME has no value.

See os-interface.htm for general information on the interface to the operating system.
