The system statement performs system commands.


system expr, parameter, parameter...


expr – An integer or its constant specifying the system command to be executed.

parameter – A value passed to the system command.


Prior to Release 3.0 of Dexterity, the tasks performed by the functions described in the Function Libraries were performed by system commands. While we now recommend that you use Function Library functions instead of system commands in your applications, this statement continues to be supported for backward compatibility. Thus, applications created using earlier versions of Dexterity will still compile properly using the latest version of Dexterity.
