How to supress command window ?

I am using the system(); function call from a C/C++ application for certain command line calls to the OS (WinXp / Win-Vista-32 are intended target platforms). Every time I invoke the function, a command window opens up, and displays the output. I have tried a number of things from turning echo off to writing the output of the command to a file (for example system(" dir /q > f1.txt") ), BUT, nothing stops the command window from popping up.

How do I stop it from showing up at all?

I am using DevC++ for development, so any mingW/gcc specific makefile options are most welcome.

many thanks!

    Never use system() !
    Use Win32 apis, which have been made for that.
    You can ask on specialized Win32 api newsgroup :
    news://194.177.96.26/comp.os.ms-windows.programmer.win32
    to get any win32 api.
