Tilde expansion seems to work for :source but not for other commands like :hardcopy or :layout dump. The support only seems to be mentioned in fileio.c:findrcfile(). I looked at the RC_SOURCE case of process.c, and found fileio.c:do_source(). But when I look at RC_HARDCOPY, most of the work seems to be in fileio.c:WriteFile(). And in RC_LAYOUT for dumping and RC_READBUF, they ultimately call fileio.c:secfopen().

Are there any plans to cover tilde expansion beyond findrcfile()?
