    system();

    im using lcc-win32 compiler
    program runs under dos
    this is my problem => i want to work with system();
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    
    int main()
    	{
    		int system();
    		system(" ren C:\\lamb.txt lamb.lamb");
    		return 0;
    	}
    now this thing works on my computer but if i send it to other ppl it wont work it will only work on the comp where it has been compiled =>is this because of the compiler or is system(); just like that ....

    lcc-win32 produces win32 executables. your programs are not running under dos.

    why do you prototype system()? just include the proper header file.
    hello, internet!

    *in the example i use ren of rename but i also did this with md (make directorie) and this works on my comp but not on another
    then i thoughtmayb i must take a directory wich evry one has so i said ill make a map in c:\windows\desktop now this wont work as well so ... it has nothing to do with a certain file that doesnt exists or a directory who doesnt exist

    *and about the error it appears that the application just shuts down and that it doesnt give an error
    * someone also said why do u prototype system(); =>because if i dont lcc gives an error and then it wont compile
