    Search for text on screen or a file

    1) How would I search for text on the screen?
    (Like finding the word "text" in this thread)

    2) How would I search for a program and then open it if I dont know
    the exact file location?

    1.)
    If the text is in a string, there is:
    http://www.cppreference.com/cppstring/find.html
    http://www.cppreference.com/cppstrin..._first_of.html
    http://www.cppreference.com/cppstring/find_last_of.html
    http://www.cppreference.com/cppstring/rfind.html

    If it is just something you cout'ed it is a lot more complicated.

    2.) OS specific.
    It can be fairly easily done with the system() command though.
