The _ARGS global variable stores any arguments to the current action. As an example, if this command line was used to launch Premake:

$ premake5 vs2012 alpha beta

...then _ARGS[1] will be set to "alpha" and _ARGS[2] to "beta". If there are no arguments this array will be empty.


Premake 4.0 or later.
