I have tried so many ways to use ${WING:FILENAME} in my script, that I am out of ideas. In my script, I want to use the filename of the script as a variable. So simply put, I want something like this:

fileName = ${WING:FILENAME}

After reading I tried just about every combination, including os.environ.get, but I keep getting a syntax error on ${WING:FILENAME}. I am positive I am just making a stupid mistake in my thought process somewhere, but I just need to be able to use this variable. So I need help :-/

${WING:FILENAME} can only be used within Wing to configure your project and is not automatically set in the environment of processes that Wing launches. You can set an environment variable to its value yourself by adding a MYFILENAME=${WING:FILENAME} to the environment.

That was exactly what I needed to know. Thanks!
