I'm curently working on a project which involves taking certain system values and representing them graphically in a game-style (pacman, in fact) screensaver.
I'm wondering if there's any simple way in C++ of pulling in integer values for CPU and Memory usage (as a percentage), and the number of users on a network. I've done some googling on the subject, and all the solutions I've found seem to involve about half a dozen header and resource files. I was really hoping for something that can be accomplished in a few lines of code.
Can anyone help, or am I being overly optimistic?
