    Have you done ANY programming, or are you asking which functions to
    open, read, compare and read until done, then close??

    I mean accessing data like program files or windows using a console program
    typing C:\ProgramFiles will bring up the data/files inside it.

    I have Dev-cpp compiler too, Bloodshed software?

    Anyway, writing a program to open / edit / close / access a file or a program is extremely complicated... I'm still not sure how myself, i've been busy with other things :)
