[R] Running executable files from R

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,
