,----[ C-h v org-agenda-files RET ]
| org-agenda-files is a variable defined in `org.el'.
| Its value is ("~/git/org/agenda")
| Original value was nil
| Documentation: The files to be used for agenda display.  Entries may
| be added to this list with M-x org-agenda-file-to-front and removed
| with M-x org-remove-file.  You can also use customize to edit the
| list.
| If an entry is a directory, all files in that directory that are
| matched by `org-agenda-file-regexp' will be part of the file list.
| If the value of the variable is not a list but a single file name,
| then                            ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
| the list of agenda files is actually stored and maintained in that
| file, one agenda file per line.  In this file paths can be given
| relative to `org-directory'.  Tilde expansion and environment variable
| substitution are also made.
| You can customize this variable.
