""" This module tries to retrieve as much platform identifying data as
    possible. It makes this information available via function APIs.

    If called from the command line, it prints the platform
    information concatenated as single string to stdout. The output
    format is useable as part of a filename.

    Note that this module is a fast moving target. I plan to release
    version 1.0 as the final version.

    Still needed:
    � more support for WinCE
    � support for MS-DOS (PythonDX ?)
    � support for Amiga and other still unsupported platforms running Python
    � support for additional Linux distributions

    Many thanks to all those who helped adding platform specific
    checks (in no particular order):

      Charles G Waldman, David Arnold, Gordon McMillan, Ben Darnell,
      Jeff Bauer, Cliff Crawford, Ivan Van Laningham, Josef
      Betancourt, Randall Hopper, Karl Putland, John Farrell, Greg

      Hammond, Bill Tutt, Hans Nowak, Uwe Zessin (OpenVMS support),
      Colin Kong, Trent Mick
 
    History:
    0.8.0 - added sys.version parser and various new access
            APIs (python_version(), python_compiler(), etc.)
    0.7.2 - fixed architecture() to use sizeof(pointer) where available
    0.7.1 - added support for Caldera OpenLinux
    0.7.0 - some fixes for WinCE; untabified the source file
    0.6.2 - support for OpenVMS - requires version 1.5.2-V006 or higher and
            vms_lib.getsyi() configured
    0.6.1 - added code to prevent 'uname -p' on platforms which are
            known not to support it
    0.6.0 - fixed win32_ver() to hopefully work on Win95,98,NT and Win2k;
            did some cleanup of the interfaces - some APIs have changed
    0.5.5 - fixed another type in the MacOS code... should have
            used more coffee today ;-)
    0.5.4 - fixed a few typos in the MacOS code
    0.5.3 - added experimental MacOS support; added better popen()
            workarounds in _syscmd_ver() -- still not 100% elegant
            though
    0.5.2 - fixed uname() to return '' instead of 'unkown' in all
            return values (the system uname command tends to return
            'unkown' instead of just leaving the field emtpy)
    0.5.1 - included code for slackware dist; added exception handlers
            to cover up situations where platforms don't have os.popen
            (e.g. Mac) or fail on socket.gethostname(); fixed libc
            detection RE
    0.5.0 - changed the API names referring to system commands to *syscmd*;
            added java_ver(); made syscmd_ver() a private
            API (was system_ver() in previous versions) -- use uname()
            instead; extended the win32_ver() to also return processor
            type information
    0.4.0 - added win32_ver() and modified the platform() output for WinXX
    0.3.4 - fixed a bug in _follow_symlinks()
    0.3.3 - fixed popen() and "file" command invokation bugs
    0.3.2 - added architecture() API and support for it in platform()
    0.3.1 - fixed syscmd_ver() RE to support Windows NT
    0.3.0 - added system alias support
    0.2.3 - removed 'wince' again... oh well.
    0.2.2 - added 'wince' to syscmd_ver() supported platforms
    0.2.1 - added cache logic and changed the platform string format
    0.2.0 - changed the API to use functions instead of module globals
            since some action take too long to be run on module import
    0.1.0 - first release
