Ask the P5.js guys. :-)

In general I would be very surprised if there was such a command in standard Javascript. Code running in a browser should not be able to run system commands because that would totally be a violation of security.

Is p5.js code running on host/server or in the browser ?

p5.js runs in the browser. As such it cannot run any terminal commands.

You could have the Javascript in the browser communicate with some more Javascript running as a server under node.js. That Javascript can then run shell commands when requested by the browser and return any results back to the browser.
