To open files and read the contents, use fopen.
ex:

FILE* fp = fopen("hello.txt", "r");
assert(fp != null);
/* do stuff with the file */
fclose(fp);



To run programs that is platform depedent. Usually something along the the lines of system("notepad.exe") will work.

Umm in Unix/Linux? You could try using system to execute it, but not sure how that's done on that platform. Give it a look though! BTW, I though .BAT files were something doe Dos/Windows? I might be mistaken though, so excuse my lack of knowledge in the *nix area [wink]

Using system(); is just all around bad IMHO.

Use either the ncurses or boost libraries.

Or implement it all by yourself, using ASCII escape sequences... ;)

Escape sequences are just as system-dependent as system(). They won't work on the default Windows console for example.

Then the default windows console doesn't implement the ASCII properly, or am I wrong here?

The escape sequences are what's known as ANSI, not ASCII
In dos based instances of windows (pre nt) you had to load the ansi.sys device driver using config.sys during startup to install support for them
Don't believe nt has support @ all

But this is the *nix forum soo.. it doesn't matter :D

Is it safe to presume nix always has ansi support?
