No.

What language is the script written in? Could you change the "hard
coded" filename to a script variable set by the command invocation?

Silly example:

$cat do_echo
#!/bin/sh
echo filename

invoked with:
.$/do_echo

becomes

$cat do_echo
#!/bin/sh
echo "$1"

invoked with:

$./do_echo filename

Windows <shudder> batch files can do the same thing, but I don't know
the syntax.
