Function name macro (the counterpart of ?MODULE)

    Hy all!

    Maybe this question has been asked a thousand times, but please
forgive and bare with me just one more time... :)

    So as predefined macros we have ?MODULE, ?FILE, and ?LINE... But
there is no ?FUNCTION (that should give me the current function name).

    Now my question is: why isn't there any such macro? (I would guess
that having such a macro is not so complicated...) And what can I do
to obtain a similar functionality?

    Thanks,
    Ciprian.
