How can I get the name of the program being executed? I know that @runpath gives the path of the program being executed, but I have not yet found the command that provides a string with the name of the program being executed.

The undocumented command @runname returns the file name of the "top-level" program running (ignoring the effects of include or exec as documented for @runpath).
