    Your system's C library will usually provide functions for this. Note
    that such functions will be implementation specific extensions.
    Standard C itself does not provide any facilities to do what you want.
    If the C library fails to provide a function, the underlying OS might
    yet provide APIs to get this sort of information.

    Since this group discusses Standard C, a follow-up in a system
    specific group is better. Before that though, don't forget to read
    your system's documentation and the group's FAQs.
