    Smile System(char*) what does this syntax do?

    I search over the internet but are unable to find the meaning of the syntax system(char* pathname) . What does this syntax do. Does it go to the certain path the pathname point too. And create a file, if the file don't exist?

    system() is an API which lets you execute a program, you supply a path of the exe as an argument.

    But this an obsolete way of invoking programs, you should try CreateProcess instead.

    ... or you can use ShellExecute to run a external command.
