Anyone know if there's supposed to be any difference between:
$user = getenv ("USER");
$user = $_ENV["USER"];
I'm writing a script to be run by Apple's Installer, and need to know
the logged-in user name. I'm finding that getenv gives me what I need
but $_ENV returns "root" - which is actually what I was expecting since
the script runs with priv. So I was somewhat surprised.
