Subject: Better way to get default datadir
Date: Fri, 10 Nov 2023 01:28:43 -0800 (PST)	[thread overview]

I have a script installs templates and default files on multiple platforms. 
In order to get the default datadir I use sed :

pandoc -v | sed -rn "s/User data directory: (.*)$/\1/p" 

It works, but it is (a) not very elegant and (b) it depends on sed and 
might fail on windows. 
My question is: What am I missing? Is there a more direct way to get the 
default datadir?
