Running other apps from a C++ app

Question:
I recently started programming with Borland C++ Builder and the help files aren’t much help at all. I would like to know what the code is for executing another EXE out of an C++ application. In English please…. the help files had some weird computer talk, but I didn’t get it.

Answer:
The easiest way is probably to use the system run-time library function.

It’s simple enough. If you wanted to run an EXE called c: ext.exe, you could do it like this:

system(“c:	ext.exe”);
The argument to the system function can be anything you can type at the DOS prompt. For example, you can give an argument such as “copy c: ext.exe d:”.
