How To Test Command Line Parameters the Easy Way

Sometimes it’s necessary to call a program and pass some command line parameters, this can be difficult to test as the other program may not be under your control or may be a live system. To test calling another program with command line parameters create a text file, name it ‘DisplayCommandLine.bat’, and insert the following text:

@echo off
@echo %*

Then in your calling program simply substitute ‘CommandLine.bat’ for the program name and you’ll soon be able to see exactly what is being passed from one program to the other.
