system() problem
Mon Jan 12 04:45:00 GMT 1998


I have installed the GNU-win32 b18 on NT 3.51 and compiled this code with

#include <stdlib.h>
int main (void)
        int i;
        i = system ("dir");
        return i;

When I run the program it prints "failure!!!!!" and returns -1.
The system() did not work with any other arguments I tried except NULL when
 it returned 1 (and
there was no failure message then).

Is it a bug or did I do something wrong?

Thank you,
