[R] system(mysql... Does not recognize < as passing an attribute (No HTML)

This is my command line request: mysql -u root -ppassword -D quant
This line works from the command line in windows.

In R, when I try to use the system function, it does not work,

> system(paste('mysql -u root -ppassword -D quant
<c:/cline.txt'),show.output.on.console = TRUE) 
ERROR 1102 (42000): Incorrect database name '<c:/cline.txt'

It seems that the "<" character is not recognized as an attribute.
