Re: [vox-tech] samba and tcpd

Hmm, maybe it really is the program name.  "man hosts_access" says to put 
the "process name" here, and then goes on to identify the name as argv[0].

Likewise, "man kill" says it is to "kill processes by name".

So I guess process name == executable name.  Definitely not the kind of 
terminology I would have chosen.
