Command Line Arguement
I m creating a C++ program in Visual C++ 6.0 based on file handling!!
What I want to do is, I want the user to mention the file name during the command line thing!!
i..e if the user types: cl problem1 history.txt
My program opens the history.txt file in reading mode.
The thing is how do I, take this filename as arguement in my program!!
Search your help files for ARGV and ARGC... That'll point your nose in the right direction :D
thnx for putting me on the right direction!!
Now, I have created a C++ program in Visual C++ 6.0.
Can u tell me the exact steps that I need to take, so as to be able to execute my program thru the command line.
Step 1 - Learn to use google
Step 2 - Learn C++
Parsing out arguments given via the command line is usually one of the first few chapters of any book on c++ programming. Finding a tutorial on doing it should be trivial via google.
I thought Visual C++ would have had plenty of examples on how to use argv and argc.. but anyway.. google throws up plenty indeed.. first hit http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&l...2B&btnG=Search
thnx all of u for the above assistance.
SirDice, the link really helped, thnx a lot!!
