running dos executable from mathematica and reading output

Hi,

I am curious whether Mathematica is able to do the following.  I would
like to run a dos executable (in this case a program that gives an output file
when fed an input file) by making the input file in Mathematica and
giving the run command (dos command line) in Mathematica and reading
the contents of the output file in Mathematica. I know how to write to
and read contents of external files but I am not familiar with running
dos executables from Mathematica.  Can anyone help me?

Thank you very much in advance,
