Any ANSI C compiler will provide the function:

int system(char *command);

This function will hand the string in command to a commandline process for execution.

Can you give me more information or an example?
The following will do a directory on the current directory of c drive on a DOS machine. You can substitute anything for "dir c:" that is a legal command to the command line processor on your system.

int main(argc,argv)
int argc;
char *argv[];

{   system("dir c:");
