Dear R users,  

This command works (calling a programm -called whap- with file specifiers etc.):  

>system('cmd /c "c:\\pheno\\whap --file c:\\pheno\\smri --alt 1 --perm 500"', intern=TRUE)
 

Now I need to call it from a loop to replace the "1" by different number, however I get lost using the quotes:  

I tried numerous versions of:  

>i<-1
>system(paste(c("'cmd /c "c:\\pheno\\whap --file c:\\pheno\\smri --alt", i, " --perm 500"'", sep="" )), intern=TRUE)
 

However no luck! I would be gratefull for any help.  

Thanks,  

Marco
