Saving to text file.

I am writing a dictionary number generator in c++ and i am currently using system("write.exe >> dict.txt");
but when i run the program i get this

(copyright stuff)
file creation error.

is there a more professional and reliable way to pipe everything on the screen to a text file? If so how. Also... how can i close running programs using c/c++. This one is for my pic1324.exe virus cleaner.

RE: Saving to text file.

command line argument for the file name could be a possibility.  iostreams or good ol' fputs :).  If you are taking the time to have the program output, you could just replace the way you are outputing with the afformentioned ways.
