Login Name$ can refer to the CONFIG parameter or the internal function:
The Login_Name$ BRConfig.sys specification may be substituted during BRConfig.sys statement interpretation. Specify LOGIN_NAME$ (case insensitive) anywhere in a BRConfig.sys statement to have the user's name appear in the statement. For example:
Defines drive G: as the user's home directory.
You can also SET the LOGIN_NAME$ with LOGIN_NAME$("newname").
The priority of the LOGIN_NAME variable setting is:
- 1) BR startup parameter (@name)
- 2) Windows 95/NT or Unix login name
- 3) BRCONFIG.SYS "LOGIN_NAME name" statement
These alternatives support the assignment of login name in all models. This can significantly simplify the tailoring of BRCONFIG.SYS files through use of the @name statement prefix. Instead of having to place a separate BRCONFIG.SYS file on each client system, the client's could specify the login name of the user, and a common BRCONFIG.SYS file could contain the custom statements for all users, beginning the custom statements with @name for each login name. For example:
BR @myname run menu
@myname WSID 25 @myname PRINTER OKIDATA
