Hey all, I was thinking, how would you build an IDE for a compiler(Borland C++ maybe), because I know how to do that stuff about compilers and stuff, but what I dont know how to do is stuff like actually compiling the code. What I''m saying is there any wasy I can run a program from my progam? Also i was thinking, how do you do stuff like coloring text?

I believe if you call system("program.exe") or something along those lines it will run another program. Do a search on http://msdn.microsoft.com if that doesn''t work and you can probably get the exact function, but I believe that is correct.
