// Executable returns the path name for the executable that started
// the current process. There is no guarantee that the path is still
// pointing to the correct executable. If a symlink was used to start
// the process, depending on the operating system, the result might
// be the symlink or the path it pointed to. If a stable result is
// needed, path/filepath.EvalSymlinks might help.
// Executable returns an absolute path unless an error occurred.
// The main use case is finding resources located relative to an
// executable.
