Last Modified: 2011-09-20
I would like to write a console program using Vsual C++ 6.0 to change the current directory and exit staying in the new directory. I have tried chdir("\\new_dir") and _chdir("\\new_dir") and system("CD \\new_dir") but when they
end the directory is the one that I excuted the program in.
How can I accomplish what I want?
