setupImpl is called via the
setup method. Users never call the
setup method directly. But,
setup is called the first time a System
object is run and after a System
object has been released. For details, see Detailed Call Sequence
If your System object does not require any setup tasks, you can omit this method from your class definition file.

To acquire resources for a System
object, you must use
setupImpl instead of a constructor.
You must set

This example shows how to open a file for writing using the
setupImpl method in your class definition file.
