class c {

int i = 0;
while (++i < args.length) {
System.out.print(args[i]);

When you using while (++i < args.length) first value of i in boolean expression after ++ is 1. When you start program with one argument (like java c arg), program no output. When you start program with two arguments (like java c arg1 arg2), program output without last argument.

Correct code:
class c {
public static void main(String[] args) {
int i = 0;
while (i++ < args.length) {
System.out.print(args[i]);
}}}

hai lavanya,
you dont get an output because the While test is false so it never goes to the print statement.
While(++i<args.length) ie. 1<1 is false.
Hope this helps

Two Topic here coverd
1) Run time Argument will start with 0
2) Pre Increment Operator ++

++i Will increate the i before it will compare.

Hi,
The prefix increment operator increments the value of the variable first and then uses the variable in the operation[or expression]. Now consider your case when u say ++i<args.length and the command line exp is java c abcd. here args.length will return 1. value of i before the if() loop is zero. when it encounters the line ++i < args.length, it first increments the value of i to 1 and then i takes part in the expression. Now 1 cannot be less than 1 and hence no output is shown.
