Thread: Argv And Argc

    Argv And Argc

    could anyone post some examples of argc and argv for me. I am unsure about it. I have to create a program reading a text file using argv and argc. And then writing it to a binary. That part I understand.

    #include <stdio.h>
    int main ( int argc, char * argv[] )
        int x;
        for( x = 0; x < argc; x++ )
            printf("argv[%d] is: %s\n", x, argv[x] );
        return 0;
    This will print the entire command line set you use to invoke said program.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    Ah, the two most important parameters in a C program. You will find them to be extremely useful in your production, especially with file specification. Enjoy!
