Access to the /proc file system is fast, so you could forgo the
variable and access it directly:
case "$(< /proc/$PPID/exename)" in
*/xterm) echo "This is an xterm" ;;
*/mintty) echo "This is a mintty" ;;
I don't have a need for this, but I had wondered how I would do it
if I did. So I'm glad you posted this.
