look at the execfile( filename[, globals[, locals]])

command in de manpages

or the following
           execl( path, arg0, arg1, ...)

      execle( path, arg0, arg1, ..., env)

      execlp( file, arg0, arg1, ...)

      execlpe( file, arg0, arg1, ..., env)

      execv( path, args)

      execve( path, args, env)

      execvp( file, args)

      execvpe( file, args, env)

Use the other examples to iterate
