Can my program determine the command line string?

    Can my program determine the command line string?

    My programming language of choice (Object Rexx) can determine the Process ID. But it cannot tell me the full command line expression, just the parameters passed.
    Is there a Windows utility/program that can display the Command Line?

    Process Explorer displays the Command Line in the "Image" tab, but I need a linemode program to display it.

    I remember REXX from old IBM mainframe days (TSO etc !!!) Regina REXX still works on PC's

    However what you need is simply the PID

    once you've got that just run this command e.g say PID is 123.

    tasklist /svc /FI "PID eq 123"

    REXX can issue cmdline commands - shouldn't be a problem.

    /* display current directory */
    say "DIR command using Rexx"

    REXX great simple language -- pity it never really caught on outside the hallowed walls of IBM back in "Big Blue" days.

    Thanks for that Jimbo. I'll give it a go after my afternoon nap. 😊
