$home

By the way, this is how $HOME is setup in mspec (on Windows):

# Code to setup HOME directory correctly on Windows

# This duplicates Ruby 1.9 semantics for defining HOME

platform_is :windows do

  if ENV['HOME']

    ENV['HOME'] = ENV['HOME'].tr '\\', '/'

  elsif ENV['HOMEDIR'] && ENV['HOMEDRIVE']

    ENV['HOME'] = File.join(ENV['HOMEDRIVE'], ENV['HOMEDIR'])

  elsif ENV['HOMEDIR']

    ENV['HOME'] = ENV['HOMEDIR']

  elsif ENV['HOMEDRIVE']

    ENV['HOME'] = ENV['HOMEDRIVE']

  elsif ENV['USERPROFILE']

    ENV['HOME'] = ENV['USERPROFILE']

  else

    puts "No suitable HOME environment found. This means that all of

HOME, HOMEDIR, HOMEDRIVE, and USERPROFILE are not set"

    exit 1

  end

end

That’s wrong.

The order should be:

HOME
USERPROFILE
HOMEDRIVE + HOMEDIR

Using HOMEDIR without HOMEDRIVE (and the opposite) are bad ideas.

So the question is, “Given that this is in mspec and it claims to
reproduce Ruby 1.9 semantic, who do we send the bug report to?”

end

Ruby 1.9 actually uses this order:

HOME

HOMEDRIVE + HOMEPATH

HOMEPATH

USERPROFILE

SHGetSpecialFolderLocation(NULL, CSIDL_PERSONAL, &pidl)

This seems reasonable. I suspect mspec needs tweaking.
