    Any simple examples would be appreciated.
    Code:
    #include<stdio.h>
    #include<stdlib.h>
    
    int main()
    {
        system("NOTEPAD test.txt");
        
        return 0;
    }
    A simple code which fires up notepad( in my case creating a new file called test.txt) application. And obviously i am running on winXP platform
