In GNU/Linux on some _distros_ you can check the symlink

If you do a readink from within C in Pd you'll get the absolute
path and name of the executable.

However, if you use the command "readlink" to [shell] I imagine
the readlink binary will look in the mirror and give you its own
name back.

I don't think /proc/self/exe is a requirement of all Linux flavors,
and I don't know what the BSD OSes do, or OSX.  So I'm reluctant
to add this to [pdinfo].

Windows has its own function accessible from C to return the full
path and name of the executable.
