Once we have JS which 'does a similar thing' to answer file (or any other OS related piece of syntax) - hooking it up to that command is relatively straightforward.
It is important to remember that browsers give no direct access to OS APIs, they are sandboxed and attempt to mitigate security issues as much as they can.
The only system type functionality you get is that exposed by supported JS APIs a given browser has.
