from MSDN:

// Factorial_main.cs
// arguments: 3
using System;
public class Factorial
{
   public static long Fac(long i)
   {
      return ((i <= 1) ? 1 : (i * Fac(i-1)));
   }
}

class MainClass
{
   public static int Main(string[] args)
   {
      // Test if input arguments were supplied:
      if (args.Length == 0)  
      {
         Console.WriteLine("Please enter a numeric argument.");
         Console.WriteLine("Usage: Factorial <num>");
         return 1;
      }

      // Convert the input arguments to numbers:
      try
      {
           long num = long.Parse(args[0]);
           Console.WriteLine("The Factorial of {0} is {1}.",
                        num, Factorial.Fac(num));
           return 0;
      }
      catch (System.FormatException)
      {
         Console.WriteLine("Please enter a numeric argument.");
         Console.WriteLine("Usage: Factorial <num>");
         return 1;
      }
   }
}

The code is identical to a web based implementation.

using System.Data;
using System.Data.SqlClient;

SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection("connection string");
SqlCommand cmd = conn.CreateCommand();
cmd.CommandText = "sp_DoStuff";
cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
conn.Open();
cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
conn.Close();


This is just some example code. If you need more help, please provide some specifics on your problem.

For the command line bit:

System.Diagnostics.Process.Start("c:\ProgramToRun.exe -CommandLineOptions");

Looks like Timbo has the Sql Stored Procedure covered.
