    Parameter problems in C++ applications

    Hi, I created a C++ application called Sujan.exe. In its main method it requires a char array of size 8. here is a copy of my main:
    Code:
    int main(char s[9])//leave space for last character
    {
        cout<<s;
        //I'm not doing anything here, I just want to know
        //whether my program reads in the parameters
    
           return EXIT_SUCCESS;
    }
    Sujan.exe is in the C drive
    In command prompt I try to pass my parameters in various ways, all of which bring up access violations.
    C:/Sujan.exe/"~+02~-03"
    C:/Sujan.exe/~+02~-03
    C:/Sujan.exe "~+02~-03"
    C:/Sujan.exe ~+02~-03

    wats my problem? Am I asking the wrong thing in my C++ program or is my command to the exe flawed so that I cannot access these parameters?

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    Code:
    int main(int argc, char **argv)
    would help, where argv is an array of character arrays containing your arguments.
