You can use system() to run another program, but I would strongly
discourage its use. There are other ways to execute another program but
they are all platform dependent, but many platforms are more or less
POSIX compatible and supports exec() and friends.

That depends on what operating system you're using. Linux/Unix would
use a "fork" call, Windows programs would use something in the Win32
API. You should ask in a platform-specific group (or consult your
system documentation), it's off-topic here.
