    Is this 'real' MSDOS or just a Windows console? If you have access to the windows API you can use CreateProcess.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    Any of these help?
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
