Adding Arguments


I try to add file string argument in my plugin. I want use it as file path and open and read this file.

I write:

const char *fileFlag = "-f", *fileLongFlag = "-file";

MSyntax Beta01Cmd::newSyntax()
    MSyntax syntax;

    syntax.addFlag( fileFlag, fileLongFlag, MSyntax::kString );

	return syntax;

MStatus Beta01Cmd::doIt(const MArgList &args)
	MString mymfile;

	MArgDatabase argData( syntax(), args );

    if( argData.isFlagSet( fileFlag ) )
		argData.getFlagArgument( fileFlag, 0, mymfile );;
	if(!filein) { 
		MGlobal::displayError(MString("Error opening file..."));
		return MStatus::kFailure;

I compiled it without error but when a run it Maya crash. I write:

Beta01 -f "/Users/soulless/data.dat"

Help please!!
