Probe::MachineInfo - The great new Probe::MachineInfo!
Probe::MachineInfo aims to be a set of collector/probe classes which allow the extraction of information about the configuration of a machine. For example the number of CPUs it has and how much memory it has.
This release is really just a taster release of what's to come. The architecture may change quite a lot. At the moment there is a bit of a Unix bias because that's the type of operating system that I do almost all of my real work on. However I also hope to add support for Windows hosts at some earlyish stage.
Quick summary of what the module does.
Perhaps a little code snippet.
use Probe::MachineInfo; my $foo = Probe::MachineInfo->new(); ...
I'll support any platform that I have experience of, or which someone will tell me is compatible with the existing code (e.g. another unix variant) or which someone will give me a patch for and help me test.
