ICI Modules: sys

Modules by name : by type


The sys module is used to access system calls and similar operating system related functions. The sys module exists for Windows platforms with some loss of functionality of the Win32 implementation.

The sys module is intended to replace the intrinsic system call functions that have been in ICI since the very earliest days of its development. Programmers are encouraged to use the module where-ever possible.


The module provides a large number of functions and defines a number of constants to take the place of the macros used with C. The functions are listed here, the constants are documented with the functions to which they apply.
