OS: Interface to the Operating system
OS is part of the CategoryAplTree project.
This class offers methods that return the same result under Windows, Linux (without the PI) and Mac OS.
Examples are GetPID and KillPID.
Exceptions are the functions ShellExecute (Linux/Mac only) and WinExecute (Windows only). They perform very similar tasks but with very different parameters and results, so they were separated.

Using an APLTree member
- If you just want to consume (use) an APLTree member then you have several choices:
Download it from its dedicated download page http://download.aplwiki.com/
Access it via FTP: ftp://ftp.aplwiki.com/APLTree/ with the user ID "anonymous". There is no password needed.
- Note that accessing it via ftp allows you to download older versions as well while the dedicated download page offers just the most current version.
If you want to contribute to an APLTree project see HowToContributeToTheAPLTreeProject for details.
Get the full project
If for some reason you need access to, say, the test cases then you need to get more then just the script (or application) itself.
HowToContributeToTheAPLTreeProject explains how to get a project onto your local machine. Just ignore any additional steps.
