    Angry Displaying a webpage

    How can you launch the web browser (user's default one) to a website that you are sending parameters to. For example-
    This will tell google to search for "hello there." But the problem is if I try to use the system() function and the start command it always gives me errors. Anything I try always brings up the invalid command/batch file/executable program error. I tried placing quotes around the URL but that didn't help.

    I'm not real clear on what you want to do...clarify please. Maybe you mean

    Start - Run (or Winkey-R) -> http://google.com

    Pushing enter works for me.
    Away.

    Through a program, not by me. But launching a web browser to access google.com isn't a problem, the problem comes when I want yo pass arguments to a script on google.com. See what I mean?
