Home of the ABS programming language: the joy of shell scripting.


The @runtime module provides information about the ABS runtime that is currently executing the script.


runtime = require('@runtime')


Returns the version of the ABS interpreter:

runtime.version # "x.y.z" eg. 1.0.0


Returns the name of the runtime:

runtime.name # "abs"


That’s about it for this section!

You can now explore how to easily build command-line applications through the @cli module.
