That's really a scilab question, nothing to do with R as far as I can  
see. Moreover, you haven't provided any of the information requested  
in the posting guide (OS, example, ...).

i'm guessing that something along those lines should work,

> system("scilab -nw -f yourscript.sce")

that is, provided your file is in the working directory and your shell  
knows about scilab (untested). If this fails, you need to make sure  
that you know the command to run a scilab script from a terminal, and  
I doubt this is the place to ask for it.

Hope this helps,
