    Run File?

    (WinXP, Borland C++ Free Command Line Compiler)

    I'm making a console game, I have a problem though, if I send a message through cout it ends up messing with my UI (Which has to be redraw every few seconds anyway). I'm trying to avoid relying on windows.h to much (Though, I'm going to end up using it anyways.) But, I want to atleast try to make my own message box.

    So, is their some function to run an exe from a program? (Also, If I do this, is their some way to send values to it?)

    Thank you!

    Error W8057 C:\\Life.cpp: Invalid number of arguments in function run(Brain *)

    It appears I missed thoes. Looks like I'm going to have to do some reading on how parent/child processes communicate.

    Thanks salem.
