R-users,

Is there currently any way to make a call to unix from within R, which in 
S is done with the command `unix()'.  In particular, I would like to use 
Matt Calder's Scompile package under R.  Has anyone implemented this?  
Besides the unix() command, it looks like it should be compatible(??).

Thanks,
Matt
