Thank you Steve! I never knew anything about control files, redirection operators etc.
My windows is 7. I tried all the options (<, >,<<, >>, <&, >&,|) but still it doesn't work. I'm really frustrated. I'm using:
system('C:/myfolder/myprogram.exe < C:/myfolder/for005.dat');
So what am I missing here?
Thank you again.
