thanks- that should work just fine.

Was the HOME variable documented anywhere? If it was I sure didn't find it!

Hey Stan,

Saw your post on the vee (god's own product) reflector.  The HOME
variable is used to point to individual configuration files, like your
veeio file and your veerc file.  Otherwise, vee looks in some default
location, the install directory if I remember right.  The use of HOME is
intended to let systems with multiple users tailor the environment to
their individual preferences, while giving a default installation a sane
set of stuff to work with.
