Ah, much simpler problem.

macOS is a certified Unix.  It works just like Linux.

On startup, you can check $# for the number of args passed in the 
command line, or $1, $2, etc. to get the value of any one of them.

If you need really sophisticated command-line argument handling, check 
out the getOpt function Peter Brett added for that:
