Hi there,

I have a function which accpets user inputs as strings. I am expecting
to receive variable number of arguments.

The first word would be a command and the next few the required data
for the command(if required)

Is there a better way to do this rather than parsing the input
and separating each words etc...  ( this function is not the main entry point of the program)...

void handleInputCommand(char *input)
     if(strcmp("doJob1", input0)== 0)
     else if(strcmp("doJob2", input0) == 0)
