C++ Library for pulling system and hardware information, without hitting the command line.

Requirements

No non-built-in ones by default.
Some libraries are required for extended functionality. See the Configurability section below for details.

On Windows one needs to link to gdi32, version, Ole32, OleAut32, wbemuuid and ntdll.

A usable git binary is required by default, to clone https://github.com/pciutils/pciids. INFOWARE_PCI_IDS_REPOSITORY can be set to override that clone URI. INFOWARE_PCI_IDS_PATH can be set to use the specified file instead of using git at all.

Configurability

CMake definition and C++ preprocessor macro Meaning Linker library Priority
INFOWARE_USE_X11 Use X11 for display detection X11 <Win32/Darwin
INFOWARE_USE_D3D Use D3D for GPU detection dxgi >OpenCL
INFOWARE_USE_OPENCL Use OpenCL for GPU detection OpenCL <D3D
INFOWARE_USE_OPENGL Use OpenGL for GPU detection OS-dependent* <OpenGL

*Consult the section under the if(INFOWARE_USE_OPENGL) condition in CMakeLists.txt for variants.

    Handle Macs' CPUs better

    #11 happened because the Mac the author was using didn't have /proc/cpuinfo – there should probably be either (a) an alt name for /proc/cpuinfo or (b) some other way of getting that data out of Macs.

  • System abstraction

    System abstraction

    We need a way of finding out more overarching system information not directly related to the internal hardware. May include:

    • [x] OS Vendor / Information (Ubuntu, Windows 10, etc.) (Probably going to need a versioning structure for these things too)
    • [x] Kernel Information (Linux, Vista, whatever the fuck is inside Mac OSX)
    • [x] Monitor/Display Count (kind've stretch, but would be nice, can also include extra information like 'High DPI' and what not)
    • [x] Memory (size in bytes)

    Fancy:

    • [x] # of mice
    • [x] # of keyboards

  • Install target: Export library and Cmake configuration files

    Install target: Export library and Cmake configuration files

    Making a second PR for the installation target as requested

    With these additions, when running the installation target (make install), the installation directory will be set with:

    ├── include
       ├── cpu.hpp
       ├── gpu.hpp
       ├── infoware.hpp
       ├── system.hpp
       └── version.hpp
    ├── lib
       └── libinfowared.a
    └── share
        └── infoware
            ├── infowareConfig-debug.cmake
            ├── infowareConfig.cmake
            └── infowareConfigVersion.cmake
    

    Note: The installation directory can be set with CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX, otherwise it will be the default GNU directories on UNIX platforms (/usr/include,/usr/lib )

    To choose the headers that will be exported, they have to be labelled as PUBLIC_HEADERS, hence the variable I added and the set_target_properties

    The share folder is useful for external projects built with CMake too using the library. Indeed in another project, to use this library, all you have to do then is find_package(infoware) and target_link_libraries(${PROJECT_NAME} PRIVATE infoware). CMake is then handling everything else (Include directories, compile definitions, dependencies).

    CMake is creating infowareConfig.cmake that contains the common infos for you project and is creating a config file by build type (infowareConfig-debug.cmake for instance) for specific rules. The infowareConfigVersion.cmake is just here to handle the versions, for instance an external project can do find_package(infoware 1.0) to have a specific version

    When doing find_package(infoware) in my project, CMake will take automatically the corresponding library (debug or release), depending on my project's CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE.

    The debug postfix I added (notice the d at the end libinfowared) is not mandatory but useful just to know in which mode the library was built (when configured with CMake with CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE).

  • CPU Frequency on Windows is bogus

    CPU Frequency on Windows is bogus

    The windows implementation of iware::cpu::frequency does basically QueryPerformanceFrequency() * 1000 -- which returns completely bogus values. On my machine, QueryPerformanceFrequency returns e.g. 10 MHz, so this reports 10 GHz...

    Finding accurate values may be hard, but would it be preferable to return a guesstimate from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\DESCRIPTION\System\CentralProcessor\0\~MHz (e.g. 3696 on my machine)?

    OS_Info.full_name on MacOS

    OS_Info.full_name on MacOS gives me information about the kernel (basically uname -a).

    On Linux it gives information (name and version) about the distribution, and that looks more coherent.

    Shouldn't the MacOS version do something similar, like the output of the sw_vers command?
