Command-Line Argument in FoxPro 2.0

Question:
Is there any way for FoxPro to accept a command-line argument:
c:\foxpro2.0\fox myprogram "Justin"
Where "Justin" is a string sent to the FoxPro program 'myprogram' as a parameter?

Answer:
No, you cannot do that directly. You could compile Myprogram into an EXE and run it from the command line:

c:\foxpro2.0\myprogram Justin
Notice that I did not include quotes around Justin. That is because all command-line arguments passed to an EXE are passed as character. You can accept parameters by having a PARAMETERS statement at the top of the main program of the EXE.
