# Give path as an argument

Hi!
Is there a way to give path as an argument?

I was thinking at something like this:

``````input {

file {

path => argv

sincedb_path => "NUL"

start_position => "beginning"

}

}
``````

logstash c:\path_to_file\input_file.csv -f logstash_config.conf

Thanks,

You can use environment variables. Not quite the same but you could get it to work depending on what you are trying to do.
