How to query system CPU from within Max?

    Hi, does anyone know how to query the system CPU from within a Max patch? (I DON'T mean the audio CPU usage displayed by the adstatus object, which just how much CPU is used by the audio system. I mean the overall CPU usage of the computer, even when audio is turned off.) I am using Max 5 on a Mac.
    (Obviously, I know how to see the CPU usage of my system from outside Max - I would like to know how to get that info into a patch.)
