Disclaimer: Although NetworkInfo seems to work fine, it is distributed "as is". Use at your own risk. This XFCN has not been thoroughly tested. (The 'b' in the version number indicates its "beta" status.) If you have problems with it, please let me know.
NetworkInfo is a HyperCard XFCN that lets you get various bits-o-network info about the Mac. The information is returned as a chunk of text with the different bits in separate lines so you get it like "put line 1 of NetworkInfo() into ethernetAddress". I thought about using a list, similar to the Network Info scripting addition, but because HyperCard lists are delimited with commas and commas can appear in some of the items, this wouldn't work. Currently, the info returned includes (line 1) the ethernet address, (line 2) the AppleTalk network number and node ID, (line 3) the local zone, and (line 4) the computer (Chooser) name.
If you have any questions, comments, (constructive) criticism, or bug reports please let me know. You can contact me at the address(es) below.
