notcurses_util - portable utility functions

#include <notcurses/notcurses.h>

char* notcurses_accountname(void);

char* notcurses_hostname(void);

char* notcurses_osversion(void);

Notcurses provides some utility functions, usually to abstract away platform-dependent differences.

notcurses_accountname returns a heap-allocated copy of the account name under which the program is running. notcurses_hostname returns a heap-allocated copy of the local host name. notcurses_osversion returns a heap-allocated human-readable representation of the operating system and its version.

All functions return NULL on error.
