Hi. I am trying to run perl script from R. Here's what happens.

> setwd("C:\\Terri\\perl")
> getwd()

[1] "C:/Terri/perl"
> list.files()

[1] "hello.pl" "lines1_10.txt" "try_my.pl" "try_my.txt"
> system("hello.pl")

Warning message:
In system("hello.pl") : Impossible to run C:\Terri\perl\hello.pl

Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?
