How to gather information about the system hardware?

Discussion in 'Python' started by Florencio Cano, May 8, 2008.

  1. Hi,
    I'm looking for a method of gathering information about the system
    hardware and software installed using Python. I would like to do it in
    UNIX and in Windows. I think that it would be good in Windows to look
    in the registry and be able to parse and search it. Any pointer to
    information would be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    The 'platform' module gives a lot of information about the hardware
    and OS. To access the Windows Registry, you can use the '_winreg'
    module.
