That's wrong.

The order should be:


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

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

      if ENV['HOME']

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

        puts "No suitable HOME environment found. This means that all of HOME, HOMEDIR, HOMEDRIVE, and USERPROFILE are not set"

        exit 1
