    Don't use the system function.

    That should be a start.

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

    If your under windows which i'm assuming you are, go to the command line and type "help", a list of system commands will appear. Search around as well there are a couple of them that are not listed. such as netstat.

    Hammer, in this case I think file IO is better than system.
    Do not make direct eye contact with me.
