    >> if ( argc = < 2)
    you mean if(argc <= 2)

    >> argv[1] = "/usage1"
    You can't compare strings like that, use strcmp instead.
    Try not.
    Do or do not.
    There is no try.

    i'm just curious, why are there so many inexperienced coders that the FIRST thing they do is blame their compiler?

    Duh! That's easy.... The compiler is supposed to be really clever, right? So it should be able to work out what we want, even if we don't ask it exactly how it expects. Therefore, when it doesn't understand our words, almost by definition, it must be broken. See, simple
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
