System calls/functions to execute a file within a program
 
Hi,

Is there any system call or library function using which we can execute a file and redirect its output to another file........Can i use execve family of functions for this purpose.If yes how?

language?

exec will replace the calling process.
Code:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int main()
{
    system("/bin/ls > out.log");

}
