    Yeh thats the code. What about the setup with Borlands?

    I have two files. menu.dat and submenu.dat that i want to import into my program via main arg parameters how do i set up borlands to do this.

    What setup?

    When you run the program you type the parameters on the command line.

    You mean "How do I setup my IDE to allow it to pass arguments to the program I have written?"

    1. Say which version of Borland you're using.
    2. Have you read the manual?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    Wellllll... you could try looking in the setup panel and seeing if there's a place to supply comand line arguments...
    I'd bet it's someplace on the Build or Run menus...

    Now hold on thar hoss... This isn't Borland technical support and, think carefully now...
    I'd bet real money that in the time you've waited for non-answers here, you could have already looked it up twice and snuck out the Kitchen for a cookie.

    Ahh that would be if i was just sitting here waiting for a response. Between posts i have been searching the program and help files to try and find my solution. I didn't start this thread without spending a good half an hour trying to work it out. I realize that this isn't Borland technical support but i figured that someone on this board must use it and know the answer. To be honest i thought it would have been a simple question.

    So you just figured you'd ask 200 or so people to spend their time on it...

    To be honest, we've been making quite an effort to wean people off of Turbo C and Turbo C++ ...
    It's beyond outdated, it's highly non-standard and frankly it wasn't all that good even when it was new.

    Steps:

    1. Learn the name of the Compiler/IDE you are using. "C++Builder XE"
    2. Use Google to find the answer

    https://forums.embarcadero.com/threa...threadID=52540
    Use the Run|Parameters...diaglog box...
    See http://docwiki.embarcadero.com/RADStudio/en/Debugger
    I hope you learn to use Google or you will fail as an programmer.
