On Windows XP either of these work under R. Here echo and findstr
are builtin Windows commands but you could substitute others:
system("cmd /c echo abc | findstr a", intern = TRUE)
shell("echo abc | findstr a", intern = TRUE)
If its necessary to special case it then note that the
R variable .Platform$OS.type equals "windows" on Windows.
