That's not entirely true - you end up going through the hardware
abstraction layer on any NT-based OS, or you end up with a gpf. In any
event, no, I don't think it's possible natively in rev. You might try
shelling out to a VBScript program if that will do it, or crafting a
DLL in C as a rev external shim.
