Launching a program from Firemonkey

Postby smd » Wed Dec 09, 2015 11:42 am

When writing a C program where I want to launch a program from my program, I would use the spawn() or system() functions. That is the classic POSIX way to do it.

What is the preferred way in Firemonkey to launch an arbitrary program?
Does Firemonkey have any issues if I use the system() or spawn() functions?

I looked through the documentation but did not find anything that said not to use them. Searching on various terms, I was not able to find any firemonkey specific function for doing such. So it appears that using the system() or spawn() functions may be ok to use in a firemonkey program. correct?
