It's dumb but I need an answer

Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Is it possible to pass variable values to a perl program directly from the DOS command line? I'm thinking of a notation like this: c:\>perl myscript 10 where 10 is the value that my script wants to use. Please help. Thanks.
