    In <cstdlib>/<stdlib.h> you can use system(const char*); to execute system commands.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    That Faq has everything in there. You should take it out or people will eventually stop asking questions

    You need to remove the faq and change the background font while your at it. This is like reading a book when on the site. You should change the background to something darker so its easier on the eyes and maybe a blood red (or another that is darker) to make the font visable. It gets hard on the eyes after a while of staring at a book style website.
