i know we can pass the value to java program like:
java MyProgram Hello

Then in the MyProgram:
if ( args.length == 1 )
     String Greeting;
     Greeting = args[0];

but my problem how can i pass the address to my program? E.g. No 2, Street 132, 53000, Malaysia.

The java will treat each space is a new argument rite?

>> java MyProgram "No 2, Street 132, 53000, Malaysia"

like this the java will treat it as 1 argument???

then if i write java MyProgram "I'm from" "No 2, Street 132, 53000, Malaysia"
then the java will treat it as 2 arguments???
