I looked at the code a little more. I'm not experienced in this but it seems to me that the 'package miniserv;' line calls a precompiled program? Here's the beginning of the script: #!/usr/bin/perl # A very simple perl web server used by Webmin $0='webmin'; # Require basic libraries package miniserv; use Socket; use POSIX; Then a little farther in the script, I see this code: # Get miniserv's perl path and location $miniserv_path = $0; open(SOURCE, $miniserv_path); <SOURCE> =~ /^#!(\S+)/; $perl_path = $1; close(SOURCE); @miniserv_argv = @ARGV; So I suspect the process name gets set in this somewhere?
