running executable in C++ code

hi all,

i'm new to C++ programming and i'm trying to write a program which relies on another program ive already written.

the first program runs from the shell prompt like this:

# ./runner {/*various command line options*/}

the second program is caller driver and i need to call the runner program from within driver, i've tried using the command as is, with symbolic links to the runner directory and then putting both files in the same directory, does anybody have a clue as to how i should go about this.

Thanks in advance

p.s im running FC1

int system(const char *command);

#include <stdlib.h>

int main() {
  system("./runner --some-options");
