 Command line options Input >Output how?

How can I modify my script to reference a DOS command line option
for infile and outfile.

I run Perl from the DOS command line and I would like to pass the
input filename and the output filname when I run the program.

C:\>perl input output

I only know how to include the name in the actual script.  Which I have
to edit every time I need a new file to try.


$input = "";
$output = "file.out";

open (FILE, $input);
open (OUTPUT, ">$output");

while (<FILE>) {

## put routines here ;

print (OUTPUT);


close (FILE);
close (OUTPUT);
