Hello fellow R's,

I apologize if this question was answer elsewhere. I have an executable file that I need to run from R. Basically I want to use R to create the input files this executable requires, then run it, and finally use R again to analyze the output files. Because I have to do this many times I'd like to have the R code call the executable file after the input files are ready. Is there an easy way to have R run an .exe file? Thanks for any help,
