|    Note that it is legitimate to type an absolute file name after you
| enter the minibuffer, ignoring the presence of the default directory
| name as part of the text.  The final minibuffer contents may look
| invalid, but that is not so.  For example, if the minibuffer starts out
| with `/usr/tmp/' and you add `/x1/rms/foo', you get
| `/usr/tmp//x1/rms/foo'; but Emacs ignores everything through the first
| slash in the double slash; the result is `/x1/rms/foo'.  *Note
| Minibuffer File::.
|    You can use `~/' in a file name to mean your home directory, or
| `~USER-ID/' to mean the home directory of a user whose login name is
| `user-id'(1).
|    `$' in a file name is used to substitute an environment variable.
| The environment variable name consists of all the alphanumeric
| characters after the `$'; alternatively, it can be enclosed in braces
| after the `$'.  For example, if you have used the shell command `export
| FOO=rms/hacks' to set up an environment variable named `FOO', then you
| can use `/u/$FOO/test.c' or `/u/${FOO}/test.c' as an abbreviation for
| `/u/rms/hacks/test.c'.  If the environment variable is not defined, no
| substitution occurs: `/u/$notdefined' stands for itself (assuming the
| environment variable `notdefined' is not defined).
