    Add comment     W32 Constants      Translate this page
Retrieves the computer name of the current system. This name is established at system startup, when it is initialized from the registry
Code examples:
Retrieving local computer and user names
Using mailslots to send messages on the network
Declaration:
BOOL GetComputerName(
    LPTSTR  lpBuffer,    // address of name buffer 
    LPDWORD  nSize     // address of size of name buffer 
);
FoxPro declaration:
DECLARE INTEGER GetComputerName IN kernel32;
    STRING  @ lpBuffer,;
    INTEGER @ nSize
Parameters:
lpBuffer
Points to a buffer to receive the null-terminated character string containing the computer name.

nSize
Points to a variable that specifies the maximum size, in characters, of the buffer. This value should be large enough to contain MAX_COMPUTERNAME_LENGTH + 1 characters.
Return value:
If the function succeeds, the return value is TRUE and the variable at nSize contains the number of characters copied to the destination buffer
My comment:
SYS(0) -- the network machine information -- returns computer name and user name in one string.
