[R] opening a PDF document

I am interesting in opening a PDF document via the command line from  
both Windows, OS X, and Linux ( R version 2.8.0).  I found a command  
openPDF in Biobase.  However, I would rather execute the command  
myself.  For example, in OS X:
> 	system("open filename.pdf")
is successful.

Is there a comparable command line command for Windows or Linux?
