Question How to call an app from my c++ code?

Hi, first of all sorry if this is not the place to post this or if someone has already answered the question before, but I haven't been able to find it just yet.

The thing is, say i want my program to open k3b, add some files to a cd project, that i would have previously chosen and burn them, is there a way to do that?, or maybe write a text and an email address, and then open kmail (yup, using kde here, lol) and have it send the text to the email address.

What i want to know is, in my code, how to call those apps and give them the parameters needed. And also where do I find out what those parameters are.

I would really appreciate any ideas or links to manuals or anything you can point me to. Thank you very much.

you would have to look up the KDE APIs i would imagine. if you simply want to open a program you could use: system("programName");
but if you want to 'talk' to the program i imagine youd need to refer to the KDE APIs.
