const gchar*
g_get_prgname (


Gets the name of the program. This name should not be localized, in contrast to g_get_application_name().

If you are using GApplication the program name is set in g_application_run(). In case of GDK or GTK+ it is set in gdk_init(), which is called by gtk_init() and the GtkApplication::startup handler. The program name is found by taking the last component of argv[0].
