Not an R function, per se, but

returns my computer's network node hostname on both Windows and Linux.

You can use 'uname -a' for more information.

Subject: [Rd] ID for machine?

Does R have a function to obtain a name of the machine that it is running on? I'm going to be writing results to a database from several different machines, and I'd like to be able to identify where they came from.
