Hi,

Is there a way to set the program name in Python, similar to $0 in
Perl?

>From `man perlvar`:

$0      Contains the name of the program being executed.  On some oper-
               ating systems assigning to "$0" modifies the argument
area that
               the ps program sees.  This is more useful as a way of
indicat-
               ing the current program state than it is for hiding the
program
               you're running.  (Mnemonic: same as sh and ksh.)



Thanks!
