Ever thought about writing a script that prints its name on startup. It`s pretty straightforward. You have probably noticed programs where the main function is written like this
int main (int argc, char ** argv)
and you must have wondered what these 2 arguments.
To print the name of the program, all we have to do is strip the filename from this path.
Below is the implementation of the idea discussed above in python. Let`s assume the script name — print_my_name.
Note . The output will be different if you run it on the Python.Engineering online compiler.
