Re: is there internal variable like $0 in perl?


Hi Ted,

no, not AFAIK. What would you use it for? If you want, you can do 
something like:

BeginPackage["aaa`"];

myPublic;

Begin["`Private`"];

myPublic[x_] := myPrivate[x];

(me : myPrivate)[x_] := (Print[me]; x^2);

End[];

EndPackage[];

then evaluating myPublic[5] will show the information you want. Without 
knowing what you actually want to achieve I feel that this is probably 
not really what you need, though...

hth,

albert
