    I thought it was argS. Plural.

    As in more than one. I'm trying to parse CL options using

    Code:
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        foreach(string arg in args)
        {
    	System.Console.WriteLine(arg);
        }
    }
    So I run my program

    MyProgram "Arg1" "Arg2" "Arg3"

    Output:

    Arg1" Arg2 Arg3

    Notice the odd ". Am I assuming something I shouldn't be?

    You must be doing something goofy. You're not even getting them on individual lines? WriteLine() should be appending a newline for you. Using your program I get:
    Code:
    >CommandLineArgs.exe "arg1" "arg2" "arg3"
    arg1
    arg2
    arg3
    Check the way you're passing your args again.
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.

    The only thing that could be considered goofy is arg1 is really a windows path like "C:\some path\here\"

    Hah, ok I see. Since I was passing a directory in, I ended the string with a \ which escaped the ".
