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

SYNOPSIS
     $HOME/pref/.environ

     $HOME/pref/.variables

     $HOME/FILECABINET/.pref

     $HOME/WASTEBASKET/.pref

DESCRIPTION
     The .environ, .pref, and .variables files contain  variables
     that  indicate 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.
     Variables  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.

           2     Files most recently modified first.

           800   Sorted alphabetically by object type.

           The values above may be listed  in  reverse  order  by
           ORing the following value:

           1000  List objects in reverse order.  For  example,  a
                 value of 1002 will produce a folder listing with
                 files LEAST recently modified displayed first. A
                 value  of  1001 would produce a "reverse" alpha-
                 betical by name listing of the folder.
