I went looking for info about startup and found

Initial Options
===============

...
   Some initial options affect the loading of init files.  The normal
actions of Emacs are to first load `site-start.el' if it exists, then
your own init file `~/.emacs' if it exists, and finally `default.el' if
it exists; certain options prevent loading of some of these files or
substitute other files for them.


how do I find out if "in my case" all 3 files started up or any did
not.
