I'm trying to use read.xls() function to import Excel
data, but I've this error:

Error in system(cmd, intern = !verbose) : perl not

R is running under Win2000;

This function works translating the named Microsoft
Excel file into a temporary .csv file, using Greg
Warnes' xls2csv perl script (installed as part of the
gregmisc package).

What happens?
