php does have constants which are _always_ global.

define ("SCRIPT_NAME", $passed_in_script);

then you refer to it like

   my_function() {
     printf("script is %s",SCRIPT_NAME);

notice there are no quotes or '$' or anything.

i've recently changed $DEBUG to DEBUG for things like

  define("DEBUG", 1);

  my_db_function() {
    $rid = $db->query($query);
    if (!DB::isError) {
    } else {
      if (DEBUG) printf("<!-- bummer, query failed : %s
