    arguments in main

    So I have decided to put down the ms c++ and go linux for my first program this semester. It went well, got the hang of emacs,g++, and gtb. I was thinking "Hey , I can deal with this stuff. No need to usw MS product for my stumble through the C++ programming". There is just one problem here. How do set my main arguments when I run my program. Here is my code.

    Code:
    #include  <iostream>
    #include <string.h>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    void convert(int input,int base, int counter);
    void add(int);
    void report();
    
    
    
    int main(int argv, char*argv[] )
    {
      cout<< argv<<endl; // print to test argument
      
    ...
    ....
    .....
    when I run a.open 40. It prints 2.
    Any ideas would be great.

    Thanks

    Code:
    int main(int argc, char*argv[] )
    {
      cout<< argv[1] <<endl; // print to test argument

    You could have always just read the FAQ entry.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
