    Reading from the screen

    How would you read characters displayed on the console.
    Example:
    You evoke "dir c:\" using system(). How then would you read in all the stuff that the OS spits back at you.

    If the answer is really obvious its because I'm new at this.
    Thanks,
    guiderone
