[plt-scheme] Passing parameters to scheme executable- help?

PLT MzScheme: Language Manual, section  Loading:

(current-command-line-arguments [string-vector]) gets or sets a vector of strings representing command-line arguments. When a new vector of strings is provided to the parameter procedure, it is converted to an immutable vector of immutable strings. The stand-alone version of MzScheme (and MrEd) initializes the parameter to contain command-line arguments that are not processed directly by MzScheme and MrEd. (The same vector is also installed as the value of the argv global.) If command-line arguments are provided to MzScheme/MrEd as a byte strings, they are converted to strings using the current locale's encoding (see section 1.2.2).

Subject: [plt-scheme] Passing parameters to scheme executable- help?

Hello, I am new to this forum so if this email is directed at the wrong people, then I am sorry.  Anyway, I use the DrScheme IDE (v301) and sometimes make executables from it.  Does anybody out there know how to pass parameters to these mzscheme executables on the command line?  I noticed that the variable argv is automatically the empty vector #0().  How do I fill it?

Please be as detailed as you possible can if you answer- in case it helps you, I on MS Windows XP pro.  I also use DrScheme v301 with the language set to mzscheme.
