There is no SYSTEM.Mod source file, symbol file or object file. SYSTEM functions are built-in 'compiler magic' or 'pseudo-functions'. All you have to do is IMPORT SYSTEM into a module - you then will automatically have access to SYSTEM.GET and SYSTEM.PUT. 

Most SYSTEM 'procedures' and 'functions' only look like procedures and functions. E.g. when you compile a module with a SYSTEM.GET statement, the compiler generates inline code that loads a value from an absolute memory address into a variable. It does not generate code to call a procedure.

I'm trying to set up the networking and seem to be missing SYSTEM.Mod which is used by SCC.Mod. Where can I find the SYSTEM.GET and SYSTEM.PUT procedures?
