RoR Opening Command Prompt?

Is there a code for Ruby on Rails to open Command Prompt, input a
line, and execute it? If not, is there something similar or an
alternative I can use?

Thanks,

system, `` or IO.popen ?

I've tried IO.popen and couldn't seem to get it to take in additional
parameters (sorry, seemed to have forgotten that information) As for
the other two, I have no idea how to use them.

Check its documentation.

So read the docs and/or the Pickaxe Book! What's the problem?

Best,

You can use system system method in the kernel class of ruby for this
purpose

look at this link
http://ruby-doc.org/core/classes/Kernel.html#M005971

Hope this helps you.
