Command Line Argument in java:
Sometimes you will want to pass information into a program when you run it. This is accomplished by passing command-line arguments to main( ).
A command-line argument is the information that directly follows the program’s name on the command line when it is executed.
To access the command-line arguments inside a Java program is quite easy—they are stored as strings in the String array passed to main( ).
public static void main(String args)
for(int i=0; i < args.length; i++)
System.out.println("args[" + i + "]: " +args[i]);
