That would depend on the implementation of the system() call on your platform. There are already two notes for Unix and Windows right below that paragraph.

Going further into lower level specifics of the system() call is outside the scope of that documentation and is a quick internet search away.

For example:
posix - http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/000095399/functions/system.html
Windows - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/277bwbdz.aspx
