AG.3 Environment Variables and Command Line Arguments.

Environment variables and command line arguments for Emacs can be set by modifying the `STR#' resources 128 and 129, respectively. A common environment variable that one may want to set is `HOME'.

The way to set an environment variable is by adding a string of the form

 
ENV_VAR=VALUE

to resource `STR#' number 128 using ResEdit. To set up the program to use unibyte characters exclusively, for example, add the string

 
EMACS_UNIBYTE=1
