module System.Cmd
    ( system,        -- :: String -> IO ExitCode

    ) where

import Prelude

import Hugs.System

-- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
-- system

Computation @system cmd@ returns the exit code
produced when the operating system processes the command @cmd@.

This computation may fail with

   * @PermissionDenied@: The process has insufficient privileges to
     perform the operation.

   * @ResourceExhausted@: Insufficient resources are available to
     perform the operation.

   * @UnsupportedOperation@: The implementation does not support
     system calls.

On Windows, 'system' is implemented using Windows's native system
call, which ignores the @SHELL@ environment variable, and always
passes the command to the Windows command interpreter (@CMD.EXE@ or
@COMMAND.COM@), hence Unixy shell tricks will not work.
