machineType returns an integer code indicating the Macintosh CPU
type. It returns the code 256 for all Windows PCs. Some Macintosh type codes
are now greater than 256, and not less than 256 as they once were.
You should use
the platform command
instead to distinguish between the Mac and Windows at run-time. Use
machineType only to distinguish the type of Macintosh once the platform
has been established. Do not use the machineType to determine the performance
capabilities of a particular machine. Use other Lingo commands to determine
the attributes that may concern you, such as
to determine the monitor size,
the colorDepth to determine
(and set) the number of diplayable colors, and
to determine if the Macintosh is color capable.
Refer to the TechNote, "MachineType
Codes" for a list of machine codes and addtional caveats.
Refer to the TechNote, "Determining
the Playback Platform at Run-Time," for more information. You can
use zWinVer to determine the Windows
OS version accurately.
