Re: Running Gtk application in new terminal

Yes, except he said that his main program *isn't* using GTK+. Now he could *convert* his main program to use glib and friends, but that's probably going to be a bigger task. Worth it maybe for a major project with cross-platform aspirations, but probably not for a homework assignment in first-year CS. We really don't have much context here for why he wants it, what his abilities are, who his target users are, ...

Here you go.  This code implements a simple command processor, one

Since the OP is using GTK+, it seems more logical to use
g_spawn_async() or g_spawn_async_with_pipes(), the latter of which will
also set up pipes for stdin, stdout and stderr for you.  (And they are
also cross-platform.)
