    what can i type into msdn to bring up all the system commands

    I want to know some of the system commands under windows, i.e executing programs and copying files, but i type 'system commands' in msdn and it doesn't want to bring them up.

    ShellExecute opens files

    and for the rest look under the platform sdk i believe
    PHP and XML
    Let's talk about SAX

    Thanks waldo, that works

    I want to be able to copy one of the glut (opengl stuff) dlls to the system folders at school without having to ask for permission, I don't think using shell/system (whatever you call them) commands will end up working though, but it's worth a try.

    No it brings up what ever it wants. Usually stuff to do with Fox Pro, J++, or Word 97 macros.
    OS: Windows XP
    Compilers: MinGW (Code::Blocks), BCB 5

    Copy this code into notepad (changing the filename and path) and save as "Copy.js". Then double click...

    Code:
    try{
    	var oFs = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");	
    	var oFile = oFs.GetFile("filename"); //Or whatever the file	
    	oFile.Copy("path"); //Or whatever the folder
    	WScript.Echo("File copied");
    	oFile = null;
    	oFs = null;
    }
    catch(e){
    	WScript.Echo("Error running script!!");
    	WScript.Quit(1);
    }
    Remember that if you are using a path, then use "\\" instead of "\" - just as in C++

    well, at my school there is a c++ compiler for the c++ class. i made a simple program using system("cmd") to open the command prompt. from there i can do anything, just use the copy command. and also, if you rename an exe that is restricted to something like write.exe or sol.exe i'm able to run it (must do in command prompt), thats just something you might find fun at school

    Its a M$ derivative of JavaScript that they call JScript (althought there are very few differences)......it works via WSH (Windows Scripting Host) as does VBScript and there's a lot you can do with it
