I want to pass the following command-line arg to NetBeans. I know where to do it in NetBeans (Project Props >> Run >> Args), but it is not working. The arg is for feeding a file at run-time to the main method. Does anyone know how to pass the arg in NetBeans?

< test1.dat

Thanks.

"Fin Lander", please see you private messages regarding an important administrative matter.

Regarding your question, I don't think that you can pass a stdin redirect to an app - a redirect using "<" is a command line capability (that is, it is not a JVM argument nor an application argument). So unless NetBeans provides a specific field into which you can supply a file to use for stdin (and I don't see it), I don't think that it is possible.
