Could you please elaborate why you came up with this solution? I
think this is not portable - for instance, our HP box here has no
procfs, so your solution fails. An "echo $0" should always work (as
far as I know).

I thought it was rather clever.

This is a list for users of openSUSE Linux or of other Novell SuSE Linux releases. At the very least, Linux is a reasonable assumption for answers given here, and all current Linux systems have a proc file system.

Note that procfs is deprecated. It is likely to be removed one day. To make your solution future-proof you should avoid using it.
