Please forgive this slightly off-topic post; I haven't been able to
find *any* other [gnt]roff news group with the slightest activity.
This one is slow, here, but at least there have been a few posts.

If there's another news group that I should post this to, I'll
sincerely appreciate a pointer to it.

Here's my question:  Is it possible for a [gnt]roof source file to
access it's own file name?

Here's what I'd like to do:  The version of the document will be
part of the filename (e.g. document.00.e, document.01.e, etc).
When I ?roff the file, I'd like ?roff to put the filename in the
footer very much as it is capable of putting the page number there
by using "%" in one of the footer spaces.  I'm using the .me

Thanks for any help or pointers thereto.

Kind regards,

Charlie Sorsby
