>>> print homedir
"~" is expanded by the shell AFAIK, so that requires a shell to expand.
"$HOME" works for me, where doesn't it work Michael?*
On ms windows there is %HOMEPATH% and %USERPROFILE%.
No idea how they differ,
MS Windows Command shell overview:
[*] GRASS must know where home is, as that's where it looks for .grassrc6.
if "%HOME%"=="" set HOME=%USERPROFILE%
