- PegUser

[Download options] [Installation / operating instructions] [Contact] [Licence] [Warranty]

The freeware email program Pegasus Mail, when invoked without arguments, runs as the (Pegasus) default user. If Pegasus is the default program for the mailto: protocol (used, e.g., when you click on an email address in a WWW browser) then Pegasus will begin composing an email message as the default user. This is painful for multiple users sharing a computer.

PegUser is a work-around for this problem. It invokes Pegasus with the user ID given in the %USERNAME environment variable provided no overiding -I or -ID option was specified. The problem can also be solved via a DOS batch file, but I was too scared of DOS to try detecting options in a batch file, and could not stomach ugly DOS windows cluttering up the environment :-).
