TITLE : Don't Overlook argv[0]!

The declaration

int main (int argc, char *argv[]) {

is a familiar sight. What you may not know is that argv[0] is a
small treasure. It is the name of the program that is running.
It also contains the path of the program. For instance, if it is

invoked, use the fnsplit() function to extract the path from
argv[0]. You can also find out if the program has been renamed
after it was compiled.
