    how to get information from cpuid using c code

    I have to get some information about the CPU. I think that I have to use cpuid because there is no way to get every information using windows API.
    Anyway I have never used assembly code. Could someone tell me how to use cpuid and get the information, so that I can use the cpuid specification to work out what I need? Thanks!

    Here's something that uses the cpuid instruction that I wrote a while ago when I was trying to learn a bit about assembly. It's in C++ though, so you'll have to carve out the pieces that you need.
