I want to execute a command using execve() from my program. Is it possible to get the output redirected to a buffer/file like popen() does?

Use the redirection operator on the command line:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. myprog.exe  >output.txt
That will divert stdout to the disc file.

Just to make sure, you do realize that exec* family of functions replace the current process, right?
