Introduction

Have you ever wanted to get system information on the WIN32 platform, but you just want a C++ console interface? Now you can with SysInfo and its related classes.

The class itself is really easy to use. SysInfo has a number of helper classes that do all of the work. SysInfo itself is just the interface to these other classes. If your needs dictate only a subset of what SysInfo provides, you don't have to use SysInfo. The other classes are in the global namespace so you can access them as well. Full source code is included.
