Debug a console program with arguments?

I have a console program that takes one file and outputs another. The file
name is submitted as an argument as usual. I can't figure out how to have
the nice step-by-step debugging while also submitting arguments on the
command-line. That is, first run the program as the end user, submit the
argument, then get to the step-by-step debugging mode. Is there a way to do
this?

putting the command line arguments in the project properties in Visual

Nah. Nice. Thanks.

I'm sure that you *can* attach the debugger to a running process, but
it's easier to do the above if you can :)
