PCCONFIG is a utility to provide you with various bits of system configuration
information. I undertook this project for two reasons:

1. We had to do an inventory of all of our systems at the office
and I didn't want to have to work too hard to get this info.

2. I had never had an excuse to learn 'C'.

This program provides lots of useful (and some not so useful)
information about your system's configuration. I basically have it
spitting out everything that I could find via software (I am sure that
there is quite a bit more information available, but this is what I
could find as of the date of writing PCCONFIG).

I plan on improving PCCONFIG by adding an interactive (windowed)
interface option, additional information as I figure out how to get it
(if you know of anything that I am not displaying and feel generous,
please drop me a note telling me about it), adding comments explaining what
is going on and giving credit where credit is due and who knows what else.

To completely build PCCONFIG, you need TURBOC (I built it with 2.0, I
don't think there would be a problem using 1.0 or 1.5, but I don't know
for sure) and TASM or MASM. I have included the objects, so that if you
don't have an assembler, you can still modify the C code and then

If you find PCCONFIG useful, I would appreciate your dropping me a note
letting me know. It is not necessary to send a contribution, this is
essentially a beta version, and I don't feel that the user should be
required to pay to test a developer's product, but please do send me
your comments.

I hope you find PCCONFIG to be useful and maybe even educational, good


P.S. Please remember this is my FIRST real program in C so don't laugh
at any blunders you may encounter.

P.P.S. Feel free to use this program, both executable and source formats
in any way you see fit. If you use the source code, I would appreciate
it if you would acknowledge where it came from (I am working on that
