File name of currently running code
p = mfilename('fullpath')
c = mfilename('class')
mfilename returns a character
vector containing the file name of the file in which the function
call occurs. When called from within the file, it returns the name
of that file. This allows a script or function to determine its name.
p = mfilename('fullpath') returns
the full path and name of the file in which the call occurs, not including
the filename extension.
c = mfilename('class') in
a method, returns the class of the method, not including the leading
If called from a nonmethod, it yields the empty character vector.
mfilename is called with any argument
other than the above two, it behaves as if it were called with no
When called from the command line,
an empty character vector.
