sys.ops - System Interaction Dynops
Operations that allow the user to interact with the system.
- gmtime(out STR, in INT) Take the integer, which represents GMT epoch-seconds, and turn it into a formatted string.
- localtime(out STR, in INT) Take the integer, which represents GMT epoch-seconds, and turn it into a formatted string. The time is adjusted to localtime before formatting.
- decodetime(out PMC, in INT) Take the integer, which represents GMT epoch-seconds, and return an Array PMC which represents the decoded time. The array elements are (include "tm.pasm" for the constants):
- 0, .TM_SEC Seconds (0-60)
- 1, .TM_MIN Minutes (0-59)
- 2, .TM_HOUR Hours (0-23)
- 3, .TM_MDAY Day of month (1-31)
- 4, .TM_MON Month of year (1-12) (Note, actual month, not month - 1)
- 5, .TM_YEAR Year (note, actual year. The year 2004 comes back as 2004, not 104)
- 6, .TM_WDAY Day of week. Sunday is day 0
- 7, .TM_YDAY Day of year (0-365)
- 8, .TM_ISDST Daylight savings/summer time in effect
- decodelocaltime(out PMC, in INT) Take the passed in integer, which represents GMT epoch-seconds, and return an array as in decodetime. The time is first shifted to localtime before decoding.
- sysinfo(out INT, in INT) Return system information. The values it returns depends on what you ask. They are:
PARROT_INTSIZEThe size of a platform integer
PARROT_FLOATSIZEThe size of a platform float
PARROT_POINTERSIZEThe size of a platform pointer (Largest possible data pointer)
PARROT_INTMAXThe maximum value of a platform integer
PARROT_INTMINThe minimum value of a platform integer
- sysinfo(out STR, in INT) Return system information. The values it returns depends on what you ask. They are:
PARROT_OSThe OS name
This is something like "OS X",
PARROT_OS_VERSIONThe OS version string
This is the current (hopefully) OS Version.
For OSes that have plain version numbers it will be the version number.
For OSes that name their versions,
it will be the version name.On HP/UX,
this may be something like 11.2,
while on Windows it may be "95",
PARROT_OS_VERSION_NUMBERThe OS version number string
On OSes that don't name themselves,
this will be the same as what's returned in the OS version string.
On OSes that do name themselves,
this will be a more specific version number.
In all cases it is OS dependent.
CPU_ARCHThe CPU architecture
The name of the CPU family,
such as "VAX",
CPU_TYPEThe CPU model
The model name of the current system's CPU.
This is something like "EV68",
or "Pentium III".
