    Hello I need to send a varible into one of my C programs. I dont know how to write the source code for this or actually call the file (while sending varibles).

    Do I need to compile the program as a dll to do this?

    Thank you for your time.

    the reason that i want to do this is because a have a C program that makes an output file but I call that program 30 times to make 30 output files.. so I want to send a string in to use as the output file name.

    Put the "variable" on the command line as an argument. See the usage for main's arguments, argc and argv []. Give it a shot and if you have troubles, post back with your attempted code.

    Be sure and learn about code tags before you post code (see the "Before you make a query" thread).
