Command-Line Argument in FoxPro 2.0

Command-Line Argument in FoxPro 2.0

Is there any way for FoxPro to accept a command-line argument:

c:foxpro2.0fox myprogram "Justin"

Where “Justin” is a string sent to the FoxPro program ‘myprogram’ as a parameter?

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

c:foxpro2.0myprogram 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.
