Quick note: since this can be inconvenient to do if you're playing
with lots of different command lines, another way to do it is to
include it in the code:

   #lang racket
   (current-command-line-arguments #("hello" "1" "#t"))
   (define argv (current-command-line-arguments)) 
   (displayln argv)

... as long as you remember to remove it when you're done.
