## [REBOL] Re: problem with system/script/args/1

### From: arolls:bigpond:au at: 3-Sep-2001 0:05


The problem is that when you launch the
rebol program by its filename only (egg.r test)
the argument "test" does not get passed in.
If you issue on the command line this instead:

C:> path\to\rebol.exe egg.r test

then you will see system/script/args filled
in properly.

I think it's something to do with the file
association. Win2k sees the egg.r file,
sees that it is a rebol script by looking at
the extension, then launches rebol to run it.
But it doesn't also pass any further arguments
to it.

I can't see a way in the windows file types
settings to specify command line arguments.
So I think you must specify the rebol.exe.
