Here's what I'm doing. I am copying a folder from a cd to a hard drive. Basically, I won't be able to know what the label of the CD-ROM drive will be so this code is used:
system ( "..\\..\\xcopy ..\\..\\* c:\\INSTALLER_4_0_CD\\* /E /Y" ) ;
I understand the basic concept of xcopy, I've wrote a test program to test just that, but I am trying to understand, with the above code, why and how the above code is written with the [ ..\\..\\] and so on.
The way I see it, xcopy should be used this way: XCOPY source [destination] [options]
I guess what's really throwing me off is the ..\\..\\
