  1. Command Line Arguments L.O. Hall

  2. Two arguments to main. • The first is an integer which is the number of items on the command line. It includes the program name. So, >= 1. • The second is a two-dimensional array of characters. • Each row contains a character string of the value on the command line at that position.

  3. So, • myprog 3 this 4 Would have four arguments. The first row of the character array would contain “myprog”, the second row would contain “3”, the third row would contain “this”, and the fourth row would contain “4”. • The double quotes indicate these are character strings that are terminated by ‘\0’or NULL.

  4. /* Two arguments to main. The first is an integer which is the number of items on the command line. It includes the program name. We print the two arguments as strings. */ int main(int argc, char *argv[]) { int request; if (argc != 2) { printf("Error need 2 arguments \n"); exit(1); } printf(“First argument %s \nSecond argument %s \n”, argv[0], argv[1]); }
