system command in MuPAD

In MuPAD 4.0 running under Win XP version 2002 SP 3

I try...

sysname()
"MSDOS" (as expected)

system("date/t > comm_file")
1
(error code=1, no file produced)

!date/t > comm_file
(noerror code[silent], no file produced)

I need to obtain the date from the system.

The docs say...

If not available, a call to "system" results in the following error message:

Error: Function not available for this client [system].

I don't get an error message, so it would seem "system" is available. Has
"system" been implemented for Win XP?

Cheers,
Brad
