Not sure what your trying to accomplish in your code but you could investigate the rename function that resides in cstdio or stdio.h.

int rename(const char *oldpath, const char *newpath);

and for your system()-call example, try something like this:

string cmd;
cout << "What command would you like to run?" << endl;
cin >> cmd;

cout << "Trying to run: system(\"" << cmd << "\")" << endl;
