The GetCommandLine function returns a pointer to the command-line string for the current process.
This function has no parameters.
The return value is a pointer to the command-line string for the current process.
ANSI console processes written in C can use the argc and argv arguments of the main function to access the command-line arguments. ANSI GUI applications can use the lpCmdLine parameter of the WinMain function to access the command-line string, excluding the program name. The reason that main and WinMain cannot return Unicode strings is that argc, argv, and lpCmdLine use the LPSTR data type for parameters, not the LPTSTR data type. The GetCommandLine function can be used to access Unicode strings, because it uses the LPTSTR data type.
