Command Line Parameters

Question:
I want to write a DOS program that takes command line parameters and uses them in the program. For example, if the program was comline.exe and you typed in the command line:

comline one two three

the program should display something like:

Parameter 1: one
Parameter 2: two
Parameter 3: three

Answer:
That's an easy one. Try this:

void main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
   int i;

   for (i = 0; i < argc; i++)
      printf("Parameter %d: %s\n", i, argv[i]);
}
