    In stdlib.h there is a function system(); - it takes command like parameters.

    system("dir") should suffice.

    Try learning to read the FAQ first
    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.
