Of course if the goal is to make BSD programs happy, that won't really help. I really wish somebody would just fix these programs to save argv themselves if they need it (or to hard-code their own names as a string literal...) rather than keeping around the historical practice of poking at implementation internals of the original libc they used.. > http://fossies.org/dox/glibc-2.16.0/init-misc_8c_source.html Yes, that's the "proper" public names...
