Getting doc strings from in a module

 Getting doc strings from in a module

Maybe it's just because I haven't gotten coffee yet, but I can't
figure out how to do this.

I have a module that can be used as a script. I have a nice, long, doc
string at the start of the module. I'd like to be able to print out
that doc string if the user enters invalid args, or a "-help"
option. E.g.

if __name__ == "__main__":
  if len(sys.argv) == 0:
    print ???.__doc__
    sys.exit(1)

Is there any way to do this?

Heading out to the coffee shop,
Chris
