Yes, I can help.  If you want qualifications, I've written a 500,000 line assembly language program.

Can you provide some details.?

What operatig system?  DOS I assume?
Is this for the x86 computers?
What C++ compiler?
Why not provide at least one example procedure of what you want?

from C++ you would use.

extern "C" HANDLE OPNFIL(char *FilNam,char Mode);

handle FilHnd = OPNFIL("c:\autoexec.bat",0);
