    system commands

    Does anyone know what I would search under to find all of the system commands that we can call from our programs. I know of a few, but I would like to know them all. I do not know what key words I should search the net with.
    Code:
     
    //assuming this is declared
    	#include <process.h>
    
    //i can use system calls like this.
    	system("color 70");// changes color
    	system("title Huge_Integer.h");//puts title on command prompt.

    Valid commands are any valid DOS command.

    you could try searching your system first... open a command prompt and type 'help' and it may just help you...
