Hi all,

sorry for this rather trivial question, but at the moment it's driving
me crazy …
I just want to execute some code depending on the jobname. I found a
solition by Donald Arsenau¹ that looks rather lengthy. So, I thought
with LaTeX3, everything is easier. Now I tried this:


because, based on Donald's post, I assumed that I need to have an “a”
with catcode “other” for a successfull test.

Now, calling
lualatex --jobname=a test.tex
always prints “false”. So – what is my mistake here and what would be
the easiest way for such a test using expl3?
