( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

You can use Win32 to get the information you want then a little playing around to get a OS name:

#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use Win32; my %versions = ( 0 => {'' => {'' => "Win32s"}}, 1 => { 4 => { 0 => "Windows 95", 10 => "Windows 98", 90 => "Windows Me" } }, 2 => { 3 => {51 => "Windows NT 3.51"}, 4 => {0 => "Windows NT 4"}, 5 => { 0 => "Windows 2000", 1 => "Windows XP", 2 => "Windows Server 2003" }, 6 => { 0 => "Windows Vista or Server 2008", 1 => "Windows 7" } }, ); my ($name, $major, $minor, $build, $id) = Win32::GetOSVersion(); print $versions{$id}{$major}{$minor};

Actually a little more work than that is required to do a proper job, but it is well documented in Win32::GetOSVersion() docs linked above.

True laziness is hard work
