iam reading primer at the moment ( around page 400) and i want to create my first usefull application.

for example

i want to create a programm that opens firefox and paste the url in the search window.

can u give me some keywords which i can google ? i dont know how to interact with other programs.
i hope u can help me


The good news is that your case is pretty trivial because firefox supports command line arguments. So you can simply invoke a command line string:

#include <cstdlib>

std::system("firefox.exe \"http://www.daniweb.com\"");
