(This is not a homework assignment although i am taking a C class right now)
I want to do stuff i havn't learned yet and i can't find my answers in the text book. I don't know what terms to look up in the index.
1. First how do i write a C program that takes command line parameters (i.e. format c:) the "c:" part being what i call a parameter. what is it really called?
2. Could i use some of this C programming that i am using for something that would actually be useful to me instead of some assignment where i convert temperatures. I want to make a small program that can be put on one of those free space servers (like geocites) and will run when someone downloads something, but it keeps track of how many times it downloads.
<a href="myprogram.exe fileToDownload">click here to download</a>
where each time "myprogram.exe" is run it outputs a 1 to a file or gets the number in the file and adds 1 to it.
i can do that last part already just need to know if the rest is possible?
