I have read the guide found here:
I cannot find any
.emacs directory in my home directory. I have
show hidden files selected. I also cannot find the
init.el file in Emacs home directory.
Since I have been unable to find the
init.el file, is it reasonable to think there isn't one?
I am using Emacs 27.1 on Windows 10. Except for Emacs home directory I installed with the defaults. I used no command-line options during install.
I seem to remember I have once read a post which explained Emacs has an internal variable which is used to hold the value of the location of where Emacs found the
init.el file after it starts, but after searches I have been unable to find what that variable is.
How can I find my
init.el file, having failed to locate it in the locations mentioned in the manual?
Does a variable exist which says where the
init.el file was found? If so, what is it?
