"args" is the array of parameters you pass to your program. Run your program again, like this:

java para 1

You will see the output:

hello
1

The word "hello" is printed by calling System.out.println("hello"). The "1" is printed by calling System.out.println(args[0]). "args[0]" refers to the first parameter after your program name, which is "para".

Now change your code to this:

for (int i=0;i<args.length;i++)
{
   System.out.println(args[i]);
}

And run the program:

java para 1 2 3 4

This time you will get:

hello
1
2
3
4

Now you get it?

a run-time parameter is a parameter you pass at run-time ;)
(ie. java <Your Class> <p1> <p2>)

> and how to get system.out.println(arg[o]);

public static void main (String[] args) {
   // this will loop through all the parameters passed in and print them to System.out
   for (int i=0;i<args.length;i++) {
       System.out.println(args[i]);
   }
}

Also,

> system.out.println(arg[o]);

should be System.out.println(arg[0]); // a zero not a o

public class para
{

public static void main (String[] args)

{
     System.out.println("hello");

//this will loop through all the parameters passed in and print them to System.out
                       for (int i=0;i<args.length;i++)
                       {
                           System.out.println(args[0]);
                       }

hi ms_lost,

In the code you've posted last:

public class para
{

    public static void main (String[] args)
    {
        System.out.println("hello");
       
        //this will loop through all the parameters passed in and print them to System.out
        for (int i=0;i<args.length;i++)
        {
            System.out.println(args[0]);
        }

    }
}

...you should also correct line
            System.out.println(args[0]);
...so it looks like
            System.out.println(args[i]);
...just like bobbit31 and yongsing said (in order of appearance)

Good luck,
    </ntr> :)
