'FindBin' is also useful.

While System.Directory is quite useful, it doesn't contain a function  
to obtain
the directory in which the running program lives.   You can get the  
(working) directory (e.g. unix's 'getpwd'), and you can try to find an
executable by searching the $PATH, but you can't find the program you
are currently running.
