Bridge : Process Class
Starts a shell command in Linux.
runShellCommand() is a blocking function. That is, once you call Process.runShellCommand(), nothing else will happen in your sketch until it has completed. The time depends on the nature of the command you are executing. For a non-blocking alternative, see runShellCommandAsynchronously().
