Re: [vox-tech] Bash question



Sorry for being unclear.  No that's not what I'm looking for.

I want to source a script from my .bashrc.   When that sourced file starts
to run I want it (the sourced file) to learn its location on the filesystem.
Normally $0 contains the full path and name of the file being run.  But in a
login or su, $0 contains -bash or -su (respectively).
