I'm sorry, i didn't expess as good as i wanted..
i want to run : ppd call tm4g (that calls T-mobile and give me internet)
in terminal i have to use sudo,
by System() is it unrunable, because i'm not logged as root... how could I bring root rigts to my program?

Hi.

As Franklin says, you can run anything using system:

With password:
Code:
/home/oracle/tmp > cat main.c
void main( void ) {
  system( "su - -c pwd" );
}
/home/oracle/tmp > ./main
Password: ********
/root

Without password you need to configure sudo for your user to use the program you want to run as root (including any programs that will run which only root could normally run).
