       Sys - System interface.

       Module	Sys

       Module Sys
	: sig end

       System interface.

       val argv : string array

       The  command  line  arguments given to the process.  The first element is the command name
       used to invoke the program.  The following elements are the command-line  arguments  given
       to the program.

       val executable_name : string

       The name of the file containing the executable currently running.

       val file_exists : string -> bool

       Test if a file with the given name exists.

       val is_directory : string -> bool

       Returns	true  if the given name refers to a directory, false if it refers to another kind
       of file.  Raise Sys_error if no file exists with the given name.

       Since 3.10.0

       val remove : string -> unit

       Remove the given file name from the file system.

       val rename : string -> string -> unit

       Rename a file. The first argument is the old name and the second is the new name. If there
       is  already another file under the new name, rename may replace it, or raise an exception,
       depending on your operating system.

       val getenv : string -> string

       Return the value associated to a variable in the process environment. Raise  Not_found  if
       the variable is unbound.

       val command : string -> int

       Execute the given shell command and return its exit code.

       val time : unit -> float

       Return  the  processor time, in seconds, used by the program since the beginning of execu-

       val chdir : string -> unit

       Change the current working directory of the process.

       val getcwd : unit -> string

       Return the current working directory of the process.

       val readdir : string -> string array

       Return the names of all files present in the given directory.  Names denoting the  current
       directory and the parent directory ( .  and ..  in Unix) are not returned.  Each string in
       the result is a file name rather than a complete path.  There is  no  guarantee	that  the
       name  strings  in  the resulting array will appear in any specific order; they are not, in
       particular, guaranteed to appear in alphabetical order.

       val interactive : bool Pervasives.ref

       This reference is initially set to false in standalone programs and to true if the code is
       being executed under the interactive toplevel system ocaml .

       val os_type : string

       Operating system currently executing the OCaml program. One of

       - Unix (for all Unix versions, including Linux and Mac OS X),

       - Win32 (for MS-Windows, OCaml compiled with MSVC++ or Mingw),

       - Cygwin (for MS-Windows, OCaml compiled with Cygwin).

       val word_size : int

       Size of one word on the machine currently executing the OCaml program, in bits: 32 or 64.

       val big_endian : bool

       Whether the machine currently executing the Caml program is big-endian.

       Since 4.00.0

       val max_string_length : int

       Maximum length of a string.

       val max_array_length : int

       Maximum	 length   of   a   normal  array.   The  maximum  length  of  a  float	array  is
       max_array_length/2 on 32-bit machines and max_array_length on 64-bit machines.

       === Signal handling ===

       type signal_behavior =
	| Signal_default
	| Signal_ignore
	| Signal_handle of (int -> unit)  (* What to do when receiving a signal:

       - Signal_default : take the default behavior (usually: abort the program)

       - Signal_ignore : ignore the signal

       - Signal_handle f : call function f , giving it the signal number as argument.

       val signal : int -> signal_behavior -> signal_behavior

       Set the behavior of the system on receipt of a given signal.  The first	argument  is  the
       signal  number.	 Return the behavior previously associated with the signal. If the signal
       number is invalid (or not available on your  system),  an  Invalid_argument  exception  is

       val set_signal : int -> signal_behavior -> unit

       Same as Sys.signal but return value is ignored.

       === Signal numbers for the standard POSIX signals.  ===

       val sigabrt : int

       Abnormal termination

       val sigalrm : int


       val sigfpe : int

       Arithmetic exception

       val sighup : int

       Hangup on controlling terminal

       val sigill : int

       Invalid hardware instruction

       val sigint : int

       Interactive interrupt (ctrl-C)

       val sigkill : int

       Termination (cannot be ignored)

       val sigpipe : int

       Broken pipe

       val sigquit : int

       Interactive termination

       val sigsegv : int

       Invalid memory reference

       val sigterm : int


       val sigusr1 : int

       Application-defined signal 1

       val sigusr2 : int

       Application-defined signal 2

       val sigchld : int

       Child process terminated

       val sigcont : int


       val sigstop : int


       val sigtstp : int

       Interactive stop

       val sigttin : int

       Terminal read from background process

       val sigttou : int

       Terminal write from background process

       val sigvtalrm : int

       Timeout in virtual time

       val sigprof : int

       Profiling interrupt

       exception Break

       Exception raised on interactive interrupt if Sys.catch_break is on.

       val catch_break : bool -> unit

       catch_break  governs  whether  interactive  interrupt  (ctrl-C)	terminates the program or
       raises the Break  exception.   Call  catch_break  true  to  enable  raising  Break  ,  and
       catch_break false to let the system terminate the program on user interrupt.

       val ocaml_version : string

       ocaml_version  is  the  version	of OCaml.  It is a string of the form major.minor[.patch-
       level][+additional-info] , where major , minor , and patchlevel are  integers,  and  addi-
       tional-info  is an arbitrary string. The [.patchlevel] and [+additional-info] parts may be
