the 3rd example works with dirname $0 as well.
In your 2nd example there is no script that is running. The
commands in the script are read as though you typed them in from
the terminal -- which means there is no "scriptname" to find
the name of.
You could check if $0 is equal to a shell name and give an error,
but source <command_list> isn't equivalent to calling a shell
Sorry don't have any better answers for #2...
