    If I ask for a user to enter a username (txtuser) ... BOB and then use that for a port how do I run the following?

    system("lpadmin -p printer -v ipp://server/txtuser -E -P /path to driver");

    How would you normally concatenate two or more strings?

    I know how to do that. I was just wondering if there is an easier way to do it without creating another variable kinda like

    system("lpadmin -p printer -v ipp://server/" + txtuser + "-E -P /path to driver");

    or something

    You can't do that without another variable in C. In languages like C++ or Java, you can.
