    passing arguments using "Command Line Arguments"

    I want to call my image using command line arguments. But my images are stored somewhere in different folder at "command prompt".

    The location of the image may look like this: "Files\IrfanView>i_view32.exe c:\*.bmp /convert=c:\*.pgm".
    I tried to copy this entire location name into my C++_ Command Line Argument. But looks like the path is not read .. .

    Any help/advise will be helpful.
    Thanks

    Launch a command prompt by clicking Start->All Programs->Accessories->Command prompt, cd to the directory your program is stored in, and run it with text after the name:
    Code:
    C:\>cd "Documents and Settings\user\My Documents"
    C:\Documents and Settings\user\My Documents>program stuff
    dwk
