    Doesn't work how? Of course it works, depending on your shell of course.
    Code:
    zac@neux:~ (0) $ cat args.c
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main(int argc, char * argv[])
    {
       int i = 0;
    
       for(i = 0; i < argc; i++)
       {
          printf("Argument %d: %s\n", i, argv[i]);
       }
    
       return 0;
    }
    zac@neux:~ (0) $ gcc args.c -o args
    zac@neux:~ (0) $ ./args "this is the first 'argument'" "and then the second"
    Argument 0: ./args
    Argument 1: this is the first 'argument'
    Argument 2: and then the second
