C# Help With Arguments

Recommended Posts

I know how to take strait arguments into C# but I am writing a console application that I would like to add agrumnets like -f or -F and a space then the agrgument

so it would look like a good unix command :)

example

command mydile.txt -p C:\user\username -l

my thought is to treat the flag as an argument then read the next one for the value ..

but I am not sure if there is a better way, as I can see this getting complex.. depending on how much the tool can do..

That's pretty much how it's done on Unix. Iterate through the argument vector, when you find a flag that takes an argument at argv[n], grab the argument from argv[n+1] and bump n for the next pass. If you want a general solution, look at Unix's getopt(3) for inspiration.

(On the off chance that you're using GTK#, you might check if it includes GLib's GOption command-line parser.)
