Default Main Method

Could someone please explain why the main method is sometimes written

static void Main(string[] args)

what does the string[] args mean,

because it dosen't always have to be written.

This array carries the command line arguments that you or OS passes to your application.
Try running your programs from command line and write something random after your application name.
Like this

C:\myapp.exe CodeMonkeys

Now in you main show the value of array for the valid nodes and you will come to know the significance of args.
