I`m learning C using the Waite`s group New C Primer Plus book, and using Microsoft`s Visual C++ ver. 4.0, on a pentium 120. I`m up to chapter 11, and all has gone well so far. On entering the first test program at the end of Chap. 11, using command-line arguments, the programs will not do what the book says they should. All they do is write the command path on the screen, as if the commands are not properly recognized or something.. I have tried other examples further on with the same results, and have checked in the help in the program, and there is nothing I can find that gives me any clues as to why these programs are not responding properly. I was hoping you could help me out. I would greatly appreciate any info you can supply. Thank`s in advance !!
