Hi,I apologize if this is the wrong list to ask, but it's the only list referenced on http://cnswww.cns.cwru.edu/~chet/bash/bashtop.html
I wanted to know if it's at all possible to change the value of $0. I'm executing bash where the first argument is the file I want it to read commands from. But this is a temp filename and $0 contains this ugly temp filename rather than something better (I'd rather it contain the filename I created the temp file from) These scripts are also sensitive about what file-descriptors are opened and are interactive, so I can't pipe the commands in via stdin reliably.
I looked thru the manual to see if perhaps there was a different way of having $0 initially set to something besides this first argument, but since I'm not using the -c flag I can't. And I tried combining using the first arg filename feature and -c .. but that didn't work either.
Thanks in advance, Davy
