[thelist] php function to return filename

I believe you may be looking for $PHP_SELF

or possibly, __FILE__

>From the first link:
The filename of the currently executing script, relative to the document root. For instance, $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] in a script at the address http://example.com/test.php/foo.bar  would be /test.php/foo.bar. The __FILE__  constant contains the full path and filename of the current (i.e. included) file.   If PHP is running as a command-line processor this variable contains the script name since PHP 4.3.0. Previously it was not available.

Subject: [thelist] php function to return filename

is there a php function that can be used to return the filename that it 
is sitting in, or actually to place the name into a variable?


$this_file = some_php_function();
