When a program dies abnormally on the iSeries (for ILE/C) you don't get a core 
dump as such, what you get is either a nice CPF/MCH error message in the job 
log or on the status line. 

If your system() call is going to generate output (for example system("dsppfm 
output(*print)")) then the output for that system command, if it can generate 
output, will be in a spoolfile. If you want the output from a system call to 
appear on the screen, them it's going to be much more involved. If you are 
expecting the command you are calling in the system() function to 'take over 
the screen' and work as if the user had typed the command at the command line, 
then this will not work, and again is much more involved than simply calling 
system(). 

Have you put a printf() after the call to system() to see if you get that 
outputted too?
