Re: changing $0 on solaris?
Message ID:

I do not think your assertion is correct.  You see $0 is the name of the
parent program, and $1 ......$9 the name of the arguments to $0.  You can
modify the arguments ($1 .. $9) but not $0.  The only way you can modify $0
is to start a new program.  If you could include a copy of your program,
that will help.
