al_set_exe_name man page

al_set_exe_name — Allegro 5 API

Synopsis

#include <allegro5/allegro.h>

void al_set_exe_name(char const *path)

Description

This override the executable name used by al_get_standard_path(3) for ALLEGRO_EXENAME_PATH and ALLEGRO_RESOURCES_PATH.

One possibility where changing this can be useful is if you use the Python wrapper. Allegro would then by default think that the system's Python executable is the current executable - but you can set it to the .py file being executed instead.

Since

5.0.6, 5.1.0
