Hello John,

I don't know if there is a specific procedure which does that, but a
plain quick&dirty&innacurate way could be:

(define interpreted
  (let ((executable-filename (pathname-file (car (argv)))))
    (lambda ()
      (member executable-filename '("csi" "csi-static")))))

Awful and gives wrong answers if you generate a compiled program named
"csi" or "csi-static" (or if you rename the interpreter to something
different from "csi" and "csi-static").  Don't use it. :-)

Best wishes,
