I don't quite understand your question. Are you trying to write a script or something?

If you are using C, you write your main method line like this:
int main( int argc, char *argv )
and then argv is an array of the strings you put on the command line.

If you are using a shell script, the parameters are usually called $1, $2, $3, etc.
