    System Commands

    I was wondering i there was a compiled list anywhere of system commands i can use in my console c++ programs.

    Examples
    system("pause");
    system("color 1F");

    The problem is I dont know any others. Any help would be appreciated thanks.

    You would do well to ignore the fact that the system function even exists. Everything that can be done with it can be done in better ways. Read thru the faq.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi
