 Help with system calls needed

Hi there;

I need to know how to construct a C function that will interract with another
called program.  For example, imagine a function that executes a mail program,
checks to see if any mail is in (by looking at the stdout of the mail program)
and responds accordingly, simulating the keystrokes of a user.

When I use the system() function, a program can be executed but no keystrokes
can be sent to it by the calling program, as it has no control until the called
program exits.  I am working in a Unix environment and I'm sure there is a way
to do this.  Does some kind soul know how? :)

- Thanks in advance;
