    help with arrays and argv in ANSI C program

    sorry, but I'm really new to programming in general. I need to write a ANSI program to print out each command line argument on a separate line using a for-loop. also it need to print the name of the executable

    so far I have

    #include <stdio.h>
    int main(int argc, char **argv)
    int i;
    scanf("***%s***\n", argv[i]);
    printf("***%s***\n", argv[i]);
    return 0;

    What do you expect the scanf() line to achieve?

    Of less direct relevance to your question, why do your format strings include asterixes?
    Right 98% of the time, and don't care about the other 3%.

    If I seem grumpy or unhelpful in reply to you, or tell you you need to demonstrate more effort before you can expect help, it is likely you deserve it. Suck it up, Buttercup, and read this, this, and this before posting again.
