Dear all

Here I enclose you more functions that I have prepared taking code from Upp itself, but that are not declared. There is also something from myself:

String GetComputerName()
- Returns computer name

String GetUserName()
- Returns user name

String GetEnvironmentVariable(const char *str)
- Return the environment variable

String GetDesktopManager()
- Returns Windows, Gnome, Kde or Unknown

Sorry: I have only tested GetDesktopManager() in Ubuntu and Windows. Please check it in other desktop like Kde.

Best regards
Koldo

Thanks, adapted to Core:

String GetEnv(const char *id)
{
	return FromSystemCharset(getenv(id));
}

String GetComputerName()
{
	char temp[256];
	*temp = 0;
#if defined(PLATFORM_WIN32)
	dword w = 255;
	::GetComputerNameA(temp, &w);
#else
	gethostname(temp, sizeof(temp));
#endif
	return FromSystemCharset(temp);
}

String GetUserName()
{
	char temp[256];
	*temp = 0;
#if defined(PLATFORM_WIN32)
	dword w = 255;
	::GetUserNameA(temp, &w);
	return FromSystemCharset(temp);
#else
	return Nvl(GetEnv("USER"), "boot");
#endif
}

String GetDesktopManager()
{
#if defined(PLATFORM_WIN32) && !defined(PLATFORM_WINCE)
	return "windows";
#endif
#ifdef PLATFORM_POSIX
    if(GetEnv("GNOME_DESKTOP_SESSION_ID").GetCount())
		return "gnome";
	if(GetEnv("KDE_FULL_SESSION").GetCount() || GetEnv("KDEDIR").GetCount())
        return "kde"; 
	return GetEnv("DESKTOP_SESSION");
#endif	
}


(Note the change in GetDektoManager return values...)
