       environ,  pref,  variables  -  user-preference variables files for AT&T





       The .environ, .pref, and .variables files contain variables that  indi-
       cate  user  preferences  for  a variety of operations. The .environ and
       .variables files are located under the user's $HOME/pref directory. The
       .pref  files  are found under $HOME/FILECABINET, $HOME/WASTEBASKET, and
       any directory where preferences were  set  via  the  organize  command.
       Names  and  descriptions  for each variable are presented below.  Vari-
       ables are listed one per line and are of the form variable=value.

   .environ Variables
       Variables found in .environ include:

       LOGINWIN[1-4]   Windows that are opened when FACE is initialized.

       SORTMODE        Sort mode for file folder listings. Values include  the
                       following hexadecimal digits:

                       1        Sorted alphabetically by name.

                                value  of  1002  will produce a folder listing
                                with files LEAST recently  modified  displayed
                                first.   A  value  of  1001  would  produce  a
