ICEWM-ENV(5)	      Standards, Environments and Macros	  ICEWM-ENV(5)

NAME
	icewm-env - icewm environment configuration file

SYNOPSIS
	$ICEWM_PRIVCFG/env
	$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/icewm/env
	$HOME/.icewm/env
	/usr/local/share/icewm/env
	/usr/local/share/icewm/env

DESCRIPTION
       icewm-session(1)	loads additional environment variables from the	file
       env before it does anything else. These variables are then propagated
       to all other processes, including icewm(1), via their environment.

FORMAT
       Each line is subjected to POSIX shell expansion by wordexp(3).  Comment
       lines starting by a hash-sign ("#") are ignored.	 icewm-session(1) will
       load those expanded lines which contain a name, followed	by an equals
       sign, followed by the value (which may be empty).

EXAMPLES
	# This is a comment.
	# And another.

	XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP="ICEWM"
	XDG_MENU_PREFIX="unexicon-"

	START_DATE=`date`
	START_FROM=`pwd`

FILES
       icewm-session(1)	looks for the env file in the following	locations:

	$ICEWM_PRIVCFG/env
	$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/icewm/env
	$HOME/.icewm/env
	/usr/local/share/icewm/env
	/usr/local/share/icewm/env

       The locations are searched in the order listed; the first file found is
       read and	the remainder ignored.

SEE ALSO
       icewm(1), icewm-session(1), icewm-startup(5).
