Ah, what a nice idea! I don;t think this exists, but it should be fairly easy to implement.

Solution 1:
Use DefGlobalFunction to define an access function the the arguments:


Then if the user calls this function, use the NewtCreate... functions to create an array of strings that you can return.

Solution 2:
Use NcSetGlobalVar(NSSYM(VArgs), NewtMakeArray(...)); to generate a globally accesible array of the command line parameters.
