If fopen(), fread(), fgetc() is not the answer you were looking for,
then chances are excellent that as far as this newsgroup is concerned,
the answer is NO.

You appear to be asking questions related to some unnamed graphic
user interface; if you manage to figure out which interface you
are using, you should ask the questions in a newsgroup specific
to that interface or specific to your unnamed operating system.
This newsgroup only deals with that which is provided by the C
language itself, and the C language itself does not know any of
the terms I've pointed out above.

when i try some fun program on visual basic.
i managed to change and read text in vb program rich edit box(once upon
a time i made a little e book creator :)

i couldnt exactly tell what you do but can tell basics

firstly compile an exe with plain form and lisbox in it(there must be
an hard coded list item in listbox i mean this item not added in run
time)
and make a program that reads a file byte by byte and changes to
chractrers(if you can find. Hex editör could be more usefull)
look to output and find hard coded item in text. this means listbox
codes near it
then make a plain form with listbox without any item and apply other
steps.
last step make only plain form
at the end compare 3 output
if you re carefull you can find the sign codes of listbox
after this you can manipulate the items in the listbox
good luck

Run strings on the exectuable, then write a suitable perl script to
filter out the text you want.

Duh, that's an easy problem.

That probably won't work.

As totally, hilariously (and this is why I just love this group), and
ridiculously OT as this thread is, I must suggest:

(Yes, I actually do understand what the OP is getting at)

(And look for the "Control Manager" extender...)
