(** 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. *)

external file_exists : string -> bool = "caml_sys_file_exists"
(** Test if a file with the given name exists. *)

external is_directory : string -> bool = "caml_sys_is_directory"
(** 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
*)

external remove : string -> unit = "caml_sys_remove"
(** Remove the given file name from the file system. *)

external rename : string -> string -> unit = "caml_sys_rename"
(** 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. *)

external getenv : string -> string = "caml_sys_getenv"
(** Return the value associated to a variable in the process
   environment. Raise [Not_found] if the variable is unbound. *)

external command : string -> int = "caml_sys_system_command"
(** Execute the given shell command and return its exit code. *)

external time : unit -> float = "caml_sys_time"
(** Return the processor time, in seconds, used by the program
   since the beginning of execution. *)

external chdir : string -> unit = "caml_sys_chdir"
(** Change the current working directory of the process. *)

external getcwd : unit -> string = "caml_sys_getcwd"
(** Return the current working directory of the process. *)

external readdir : string -> string array = "caml_sys_read_directory"
(** 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 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 unix : bool
(** True if [Sys.os_type = "Unix"].
    @since 4.01.0 *)

val win32 : bool
(** True if [Sys.os_type = "Win32"].
    @since 4.01.0 *)

val cygwin : bool
(** True if [Sys.os_type = "Cygwin"].
    @since 4.01.0 *)

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. *)


(** {6 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. *)

external signal :
  int -> signal_behavior -> signal_behavior = "caml_install_signal_handler"
(** 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 raised. *)

val set_signal : int -> signal_behavior -> unit
(** Same as {!Sys.signal} but return value is ignored. *)


(** {7 Signal numbers for the standard POSIX signals.} *)

(** Invalid hardware instruction *)

val sigint : int
(** Interactive interrupt (ctrl-C) *)

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[.patchlevel][+additional-info]"],
    where [major], [minor], and [patchlevel] are integers, and
    [additional-info] is an arbitrary string. The [[.patchlevel]] and
    [[+additional-info]] parts may be absent. *)
