passing arguments to system command
 
Hi,

I am calling another executable in my application (C programing) using "system" command
which is user interactive program.

now i want to pass those args in system command only.

system(" executable ");

Executable will expect 1,2 or 3.

1 is to continue
2 for do changes in settings
3 exit from application

how to pass these in to system command


Thanks in Advance
Nathan

No magic, just do as you would at the command-line - change the string "executable" to "executable 1" and "1" will get passed as the first argument.
