in reply to parsing system info

I have found that one of the most useful skills you can develop as a programmer is learning how to make it easier to manage data rather than parse data.

You should focus on trying to find the information you need in as simple and as focused context as possible. In other words, only get what you need and your programming will be much easier.

If you dump everything out and then try to parse, you might get what you need but you have to sort through a bunch of garbage to find what you need (you get it: Garbage, Dump?! its funny!... *sigh*).
