    Re: Command Line Arguments

    tcc -Iinclude -Llib hello.c

    is a sample. Simple tcc is the command and the minuses are options which you supply according to your program requirements and the hello.c is a sample program. Try similarly.

    Check the correct path settings and run the options as your program requires in terms of libraries...

    C program run. C program crash. C programmer quit.

    Re: Command Line Arguments

    In c programming it is possible to pass arguments to C programs when they are executed. The brackets which follow main are used for this purpose.


    #include <stdio.h>
    main( int argc, char *argv[] )
    Here argc refers to the number of arguments passed, and argv[] is a pointer array which points to each argument which is passed to main.
    *argv[0] is the name of the program invoked, which means that *argv[1] is a pointer to the first argument supplied, and *argv[n] is the last argument. If no arguments are supplied, argc will be one. Thus for n arguments, argc will be equal to n + 1.
