Fast and simple system info (for UNIX based operating systems) written in POSIX compliant C99, that can be configured at compile time by editing the config.h file. It uses the C Preprocessor to implement config options at compile time.

afetch is a command line tool to display basic system information. The goal is to be highly configurable, extremely fast and work with no dependencies apart from the POSIX header files.

Requirements * A

file * A C compiler * A compatible C standard library implementation

A Disclaimer

I'm not very good at using git, and this is my first project using the git CLI, so there'll be a stupid amount of commits, and other commits with very minor changes to one or two files.
