    using cammand line

    I'm not sure what it is called, but I want to make a c++ app that uses comand line stuff.

    Like from the program I can put a command line prompt thing and it will do it.

    That is a horible explanation I know, but I just need to be ponited in the right direction.

    You think on, for example, you have Application window, and you want your own command prompt in it?
    Code:
     
     .J?+.                             ?`+.
       .+1P .++.                         ,+` 4++.
      .+zq\ .:.?i                      .!`?  .yz+.
      ?zdd ..:.^`J.                   ,!..?...Kyz+	
     .+dXM ..!p^.N.+                 ,,^.a..`.#XO+.
     .zwWM ^`.Mc`JMhJ.             .:JF`JM..^.#WOz`
      jwpMr`..NF.JMMM,!           .JMMF.dJ..`JNWrc

        TWMp`.+;`MMMMMM.:       ;.MMMMM.;+``JHW= 
          7Mh,``JMMMM"`          .TMMMMb``.H#"`

    you are talking about command line arguements,
    which is what "81N4RY_DR460N" had posted in his
    first message.


    it would let you get commands from the command line


    such as :


    createtxt.exe -filename "file.txt"


    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main ( int argc, char *argv[] )
    {
         cout << argv[0] << endl << endl;
         cout << argv[1] << endl << endl;
         cout << argv[2] << endl << endl;
         cin.get();
         return 0;
    }
