var argsNamed = WScript.Arguments.Named;
var argsUnnamed = WScript.Arguments.Unnamed;

WScript.Echo("There are " + argsNamed.length + " named arguments.");
WScript.Echo("There are " + argsUnnamed.length + " unnamed arguments.");


<job id="VBS">
<script language="VBScript">

Dim argsNamed, argsUnnamed
Set argsNamed = WScript.Arguments.Named
Set argsUnnamed = WScript.Arguments.Unnamed

WScript.Echo "There are " & argsNamed.Count & " named arguments."
WScript.Echo "There are " & argsUnnamed.Count & " unnamed arguments."
