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, which does not support finding the home directory of any user except the current user, the name is ignored. This function essentially calls user-homedir-pathname regardless of the value of the name argument. The behavior of that function on Windows is discussed in What user-homedir-pathname does on Windows in implementation.htm.

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