    Refer to your learning materials. If it is not described there, then search the Web.

    I find that hard to believe. Have you found out what are the argument(s) that the system function takes? What are your search keywords? What are the first five results? What search engine are you using?

    Oh, and what learning material are you using? Your teacher's notes? Does it say anything else about functions declared in <stdlib.h>?

    Okay. The first result for me is to this "tip" from the main website of this very message board: Executing system commands. Do you understand what it is talking about?
