Windows
DCli ships with a number of Windows specific functions and classes.
Under the hood DCli uses the win32 package which we recommend if you need additional Windows specific functionality.
The DCli Windows methods also rely heavily on the win32 package's constants such as HKEY_CURRENT_USER so in most circumstances you will need to import win32.
To add win32 to you dependencies.
pub add win32
To access the Windows specific APIs you need to import the windows barrel file.
import 'package:dcli/windows.dart';
import 'package:win32/win32.dart';

Windows Registry

The Windows Registry is unique to Windows so if you want to write cross platform scripts then you should avoid using the Registry. However in some circumstances this simply isn't possible
In this case use the Platform.isWindows method to determine when to use the registry.
import 'dart:io';
import 'package:dcli/dcli.dart;
void main() {
if (Plaform.isWindows) {
regSetString(HKEY_CURRENT_USER, 'Environment', 'PATH_TEST', 'HI');
}
else {
/// do some posix stuff.
}
}
