Paul (and List):
I was just working through one of the suggestions Perry had about attempting
to eliminate all WIN32-blocked hunks of code, and came across the
From the looks of things, w32system() uses spawnvp() to execute the child
program, and waits for its completion. However, this puzzles me as system()
is supposed to do just that -- and tests on BCC5.5 on Win32 and GCC on
Solaris, SCO and FreeBSD would indicate that it does work as expected.
So now I'm wondering why w32system() was written in the first place?
Perhaps an older BCC didn't define system() properly?
