[Ironpython-users] Setting __name__ to __main__

I want to set the __name__ variable to "__main__" in the script I execute. However, it seems that the __name__ variable always is overridden with the filename of the executed file.

The attached example program gives the output "name: test" instead of "name: __main__".

Googling brought up the following issues:

http://ironpython.codeplex.com/workitem/2537 - Here, they use the PythonEngine.DefaultModule API which I cannot find.

Best regards
