Computer machine info

P: n/a
Hey people.
I'd like to read a complete information of the user machine
as f.ex. user name, windows name, network name, harddrives names etc.
It'd be nice if it worked under linux also but for now I need win32 functions.
What API should I use?
Thank you.

This group deals with Standard C++ only.

For Windows help, refer to one of the microsoft.* newsgroups.

Oh, and just a heads up: User information is dependant upon the
operating system, so for Linux you'll also have to refer to a newsgroup
for that specific compiler.

None of this is covered by ISO standard C++, the only topic here.

The Win32 API of course. But that's not topical here.
See group 'comp.os.ms-windows.programmer.win32'

Also the Microsoft site www.msdn.microsoft.com has
a wealth of information.

Purpose of comp.lang.c++ :
