$argv

$argvArray of arguments passed to script

Description

Contains an array of all the arguments passed to the script when running from the command line.

Note: The first argument is always the current script's filename, therefore $argv[0] is the script's name.

Note: This variable is only available when register_argc_argv is enabled.
