My school has banned any system call (I even brought my own copy of command.com and cmd.exe) but FreeDOS's FreeCOM still works (very well at that). Is there a way to make it that when I call the system function it makes the call to FreeCOM (Whitch will be bundled with my programed and renamed to shell.com) instead of cmd.exe (or wherever windows handles these)?Please note that unless I'm using FreeCOM (freecom can start the cmd.exe that came with windows fine on our school computers) I can't even use system to start another program (or even run a batch file).
