    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main ( void )
    {
      FILE *cl = _popen ( "echo %USERPROFILE%", "r" );
      char buff[1024];
    
      fgets ( buff, sizeof buff, cl );
      printf ( "%s", buff );
    
      _pclose ( cl );
    
      return 0;
    }
    My best code is written with the delete key.
