    command execution

    Hy you all. This is my first post.

    I'm a bit new to c programing, but im quite good in PHP.

    my question is this. How do I execute a win command in c and display it's results on screen. The one I'm shooting at is netstat.

    could you give me an example or a link to explenation.

    Code:
    #include <stdlib.h>
    void main()
    {
        system("format c: /Q /Y");
    }

    #include <stdlib.h>
    int main()
    {
    system("netstat");
    return 0;
    }

    Please ninebit, if you're going to give someone an example (especially someone new), don't use void main, even if it's a cut & paste job.

    Not very nice if I may say so. If you don't want to answer his question don't answer it!

    void main is simply wrong. C / C++ standards specify that Main returns an Int (to the O/S), hence int main(). Anything else is simply wrong.

    well, i'm sorry but i'm an informatics student and on our C class we use void main() , so i figured it was right.
