09:56 FROGGS question 1: why does INTERPINFO_EXECUTABLE_FULLNAME only return 'perl6', and not the path?
09:57 FROGGS question 2: is there a way to override it? for moarvm and jvm we run a shell/bat script and pass --execname to the VM, which is the absolute path to the running script
09:57 FROGGS we need the same for rakudo@parrot

19:58 FROGGS I am preparing a PR in a bit about setting a proper execname when running pbc_to_exe
19:59 FROGGS though, I can only test it on linux (ubuntu 14.04 x86_64 and 12.04 686) and windows 7 (x86_64)
19:59 FROGGS I will put a warning about that in the PR msg
20:48 FROGGS https://github.com/parrot/parrot/pull/1088
20:48 FROGGS now that I've created the PR I am unsure about the memcpy...
20:49 FROGGS when ARGV[0] is just, say, 30 bytes... will memcpy(execname, ARGV[0], 1024) do an invalid read?
21:02 FROGGS I pushed a commit that should fix it
