then enter 5 for reading 5th mail.

My problem begins here to read this mail via QProcess. How to pass 5 no after issuing the mail command when mail list with no. displays...


procMsg =new QProcess(this);
QStringList arguments;

arguments << "\n" << msgKey << "\n";

procMsg->start("mail");
QByteArray result=procMsg->readAllStandardOutput ();

QTextStream stream(&result);
while (!stream.atEnd())
{
line += stream.readLine();
}



U 12 MAILER-DAEMON@localh Mon May 18 09:16 68/2338 "Warning: could not se"
& 5

QProcess inherits from QIODevice which you can use to write data to your process' stdin.
