    using c++ with command prompt codes... i wanna know how to get the value from cmd prompt to c++?

    example i want to get the hostname:

    char x;
    x=system("FOR /F \"usebackq tokens=1\" %B IN (`hostname`) do echo %B"); :freak:

    something like this... :)

    Redirect the output to a file, then open the file after the system() command and read it.
    Alternatively find out how to do this by using OS calls - that's how the shell does it.
