DOS command using "system"

 HI R users I have one question for using DOS command through "system" I like to delete a file that is located at C:\Program Files\DOSPROGRAM\input.dat I can use a DOS command "del" on Dos prompt like this C:\Documents and Settings> del "C:\Program Files\DOSPROGRAM\input.dat" to delete input.dat file. When I try to do the same thing on R using "system" command system('del "C:\Program Files\DOSPROGRAM\input.dat"') or system("del "C:\Program Files\DOSPROGRAM\input.dat"") or system(paste("del", "\"C:\\Program Files\\DOSPROGRAM\\input.dat\"",sep=" ")) All the three system commands did work Could you help me to figure out ? Thanks in advance TM ______________________________________________ [hidden email] mailing list https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-helpPLEASE do read the posting guide! http://www.R-project.org/posting-guide.html
