[Rd] request to add argv[0]

Dear R Developers: This has come up repeatedly in the r-help mailing list, most recently in a thread started by myself. The answers have been changing over the years. Would it be possible and easy for R to offer a global read-only option that gives the name of the currently executing R script, i.e., the equivalent of argv[0] in C?

  (PS: An even better mechanism would be the ability to pick off multiple    arguments following the .R file, different from commandArgs(),    but this is not as important and probably more difficult as it would change    the invokation syntax of R.)

sincerely,

/ivo welch
