Cold Help System: Programming: ColdC Reference Manual: Objects: Special Object Status

There are always two objects which exists within a ColdC database. The first object is $root (#1). The root object has no parents, and is the base for all other objects. This is a requirement in order to allow for a secure database to be created.

The second object is $sys (#0). The system object is the only object the driver directly calls methods on, with without previously setting up with the driver (i.e. connections). These methods include $sys.startup(), $sys.heartbeat() and $sys.signal().

The root and system objects are automatically created by the database compiler.
