Under WinXP, the variable
sys.argv[0] holds the script file name (including the path). Not sure,
but it may work the same under Linux as well.

Can Python return the name of the current file's name?

In other works, if I am running a Python file (MyPythonFile.py) is there
a function that will return 'MyPythonFile.py'?

This will be used in Linux if that matters.
