Was wondering if anyone could shead some light on the below.
whe creating an instance of an object. Lets say the class type is called CLASSTYPE and I want to create an instance of this classe called FIRSTINSTANCE. The question is: Would there be any reason for me to write it like this.


Why would I use argv[1] at all? I'm not sure why this is done.


You need to look at the class constructor to see why it need a char*. argv[1] is just whatever you type on the command line folowing the program name.
