    C++ code to run a command line

    Hi all. A newbie here!
    Last time it touch C/C++ was about 15 years ago so now I am all rusted up.
    What I am after is a simple C++ code to run a ftp command to connected to a server then login and download a file so something like:

    ftp servername
    user bob
    pass bob
    put file.txt

    I know I can do a FTP command line like ftp servername -b script.txt
    to execute the above, but I would like to do it without showing the ouput on screen

    I have downloaded Quincy 2005 but can download another if needed.

    What about
    ftp servername -b script.txt 1>NUL

    Or even
    ftp servername -b script.txt 1>NUL 2>NUL
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
