[R] Wait for batch file to execute

Hi All,

I am using below code to execute a batch file on server to get me data from
an API

it looks like:

shell.exec('<<path name>>\\file.bat')
#do next step

The problem is that this function shell.exec doesn't wait for the batch
file to execute completely and jumps to next line of code.

Any ideas how can I hold R to go for next line of code until and unless
batch file has completed its execution.

Many thanks.

P.S: I tried to use shell() but it says could not find function shell
