How to enter a command line in repl

Hi, so I just want to know how to input a command line in repl. I'm aware that in C you simply type the program name followed by the arguments you want to give main. So how do I open the command line to begin with and what input should i give to run it.

This is the program I want to run:

#include <stdio.h>

// Taking argument as command line
int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
int a, b, c;

// Checking if number of argument is // equal to 4 or not. if (argc < 4 || argc > 5) { printf("enter 4 arguments only eg.\"filename arg1 arg2 arg3!!\""); return 0; } // Converting string type to integer type // using function "atoi( argument)" a = atoi(argv[1]); b = atoi(argv[2]); c = atoi(argv[3]); // Checking if all the numbers are positive of not if (a < 0 || b < 0 || c < 0) { printf("enter only positive values in arguments !!"); return 1; } // Checking if all the numbers are different or not if (!(a != b && b != c && a != c)) { printf("please enter three different value "); return 1; } else { // Checking condition for "a" to be largest if (a > b && a > c) printf("%d is largest", a); // Checking condition for "b" to be largest else if (b > c && b > a) printf ("%d is largest", b); // Checking condition for "c" to be largest.. else if (c > a && c > b) printf("%d is largest ",c); } return 0;

}

I'm not sure what you mean. If you want to see your program run in the command line, just hit run and wait. If you want to get user input though, check out this article: https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/basic-input-and-output-in-c/
