KWSys
*****
Introduction
============
KWSys is the Kitware System Library. It provides platform-independent
APIs to many common system features that are implemented differently on
every platform. This library is intended to be shared among many
projects at the source level, so it has a configurable namespace.
Each project should configure KWSys to use a namespace unique to itself.
See comments in `CMakeLists.txt`_ for details.
