command line arguments on Solaris 7

This is a discussion on command line arguments on Solaris 7 within the C Programming forums, part of the General Programming Boards category; I have a simple program as follows: #include <stdio.h> int main(int argc, char *argv[]) { int x; for (x=0; x<argc; ...

    command line arguments on Solaris 7

    I have a simple program as follows:

    #include <stdio.h>

    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    {
    int x;

    for (x=0; x<argc; x++)
    printf("arg0=%s", argv[x]);

    exit(0);
    }

    If I compile and run on windows when I pass parameters they display, however, they do not display when I compile and run on Solaris 7 using gcc. If I print argc, it equals 0 even if I pass in values. Is there something I'm missing on unix?

    Thanks,

    Todd Hahn.

    Output isn't always flushed unless you send in the newline charecter or you use fflush(stdout). Also to use the exit
    function call I think you are supposed to #include <stdlib.h>

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h> 
    
    int main(int argc, char *argv[]) 
    { 
         int x; 
    
         for (x=0; x<argc; x++) 
               printf("arg0=%s\n", argv[x]); 
    
         return 0;
    }
