 Is this function worth the trouble of trying to fix? It is very old,
 heavily patched code. It returns the following information from within the
 GRASS TclTk GUI, but I think better information could be had by utilities
 common to all systems on which GRASS runs.

  "Platform               "
  "Operating System       "
  "OS Version             "
  "Processor Type (arch)  "
  "User Name              "
  "Hostname               "
  "Tcl Version            "
  "Name of Executable     "
  "Tcl Version/Patchlevel "
  "Full OS ID             "
  "Name of current Script "

Commonly referred to as GRASS, this is a Geographic Information System (GIS) used for geospatial data management and analysis, image processing, graphics/maps production, spatial modeling, and visualization. GRASS is currently used in academic and commercial settings around the world, as well as by many governmental agencies and environmental consulting companies.
