comment Absolute path to currently-running zsh?
Thanks! BTW, on my system, the last two gave different answers, because the one given by the second is a symlink; I had to run sudo /bin/ls -l $( whence -p -- ${0#-} ) to get the true path (which then agreed with the results of the lsof approach).

comment zsh and COLUMNS
@StephaneChazelas: Thanks! That certainly takes care of (1). (BTW, this is the reason for my other question, about finding the path the currently-running zsh.)

@StephaneChazelas: Darwin; and the ps I'm using above is /bin/ps. For good measure, I ran /bin/ps -p $$, and got the same output as shown above.

comment Standard unix util to split “foo.bar.baz” into “foo.bar” + “.baz”?
Thanks for the clarification... I see that I would need two commands (or one command with two different "modes" of operation), and two calls, to do what I want. And also for the pointer about double-quoting the $rest part.
