    Is there a list of functions specific to printing computer information.

    Ok I'm wondering if there are functions for rendering computer information. I was hoping someone could point me to a page about functions for this because I want to get as much information as possible from the computer that c programming supports. I'm just playing with artificial intelligence, I want the program to know anything and everything that the c program will tell it about the current computer it's running on.

    The majority of information would necessarily be accessed in a platform specific way.

    What are you wanting to do exactly?

    Because C runs on many different types of platforms and architectures, this question is kind of dumb. Depending on the kind of information you want, a platform specific API (application programming interface) would be able to help.

    You have to know what you are programming on if you want to do nonstandard things. BTW, nonstandard means a lot of normal things. Like graphics.

    I'm guessing that you don't understand what the term "rendering" refers to in computer programming. By using that term without knowing what it means, you've completely confused me at my initial assesment of what on earth you were on about.

    Even after figuring out that you have no interest in rendering as such, I still don't understand why you're making a connection between artificial intelligence available disk space etc.

    If your post is meant to make sense rather than just containing irrelevant jargon, please explain properly what you are really trying to do.
