    Default Newbie Question: programmatically read MAC (Media Access Card) address

    I am new to this programming world, so pardon my mistake/ignorance. I need
    to read MAC address for (all flavors, OS X, G series and older) of
    Macintosh. My target software is going to be running in Schools (and they
    have all kinds of Mac). I am using Code Warrior 9. I also need to find the
    version/flavor of Mac.

    Thanks in advance

    Why? What are you really trying to do?

    Know also, that Macs have a list of MAC addresses, not a single MAC
    address.

    Actually, the requirement was to gather enough information to
    uniquely identify each machine (like a finger print) on the network. I have
    talked them down to MAC address only. More than one MAC address
    would work.
