Open original thread
I want to find out the physical address of the command line arguments ( argv[i] (all of them if more than one )) before run time . To be specific , the compiler or OS might have pushed the command line values into the stack before calling main , and passing a pointer to main on execution which points to the argument array ( if my knowledge is rite right) so is it possible to know the physical address before runtime ?

When answering a question please:
  1. Read the question carefully.
  2. Understand that English isn't everyone's first language so be lenient of bad spelling and grammar.
  3. If a question is poorly phrased then either ask for clarification, ignore it, or edit the question and fix the problem. Insults are not welcome.
  4. Don't tell someone to read the manual. Chances are they have and don't get it. Provide an answer or move on to the next question.
