This class gives you access to many base functionalities of system platforms. Looks in [sys] sub packages for more system APIs.
Run the given command with the list of arguments. The command output will be printed on the same output as the current process. The current process will block until the command terminates and it will return the command result (0 if there was no error). Read the [sys.io.Process] api for a more complete way to start background processes.
Gives the most precise timestamp value (in seconds) but only account for the actual time spent running on the CPU for the current thread/process.
Read a single input character from the standard input (without blocking) and returns it. Setting [echo] to true will also display it on the output.
Get the current working directory (usually the one in which the program was started)
Change the current time locale, which will affect [DateTools.format] date formating. Returns true if the locale was successfully changed
Returns the process standard input, from which you can read what user enters. Usually it will block until the user send a full input line. See [getChar] for an alternative.
Returns the name of the system you are running on. For instance :
"Windows", "Linux", "BSD" and "Mac" depending on your desktop OS.
