(subject changed from "[R] a doubt" )
The fortran source code for X-12-ARIMA seems to be available at
this into a standard R package would be a much better approach than
trying to hack an OS specific version with system calls to a .exe file.
I expect there will be a fair amount of work in either case, and I don't
have time to look at it now. If anyone wants to do the real work then I
would be interested in using it (but using calls to a .exe would not be
very useful to me). The first thing to check would be the license, as I
have not looked at it. The next is probably the question of whether the
fortran is nicely organized in subroutines without IO, so R can call
those and avoid fortran IO problems.
(Perhaps there are R users at the U.S. Census Bureau that would be
willing to help?)

Specifically, I'm trying to create an interface in R for the X-12-ARIMA and TRAMO SEATS, for the versions that run in MS-DOS. This problem awake in me the interest for make interfaces to comparing some Bayesian models for classification that where implemented in MS-DOS to. The question for you is if you know about the existence of an R function that allows me to run -in Windows- executable files in MS-DOS from the R command window.
