Retreiving unique palm id

Retreiving unique palm id

Retreiving unique palm id

Hey all;
My name is Dennis Golovaty and i was wondering how i would go about writing the code to retrieve the unique palm id associated with each palm pilot.  Thank you very much for taking the time to answer this question.


RE: Retreiving unique palm id

I hope this helps.


static CharPtr GetSerialNum(void)
    CharPtr     bufP,num;    
    Word         bufLen,retval;
    retval = SysGetROMToken (0, sysROMTokenSnum,(BytePtr*) &bufP, &bufLen);
    if ((!retval) && (bufP) && ((Byte) *bufP != 0xFF))
        // there's a valid serial number!
        // Get it!

        bufLen = 12;
        num = (char *)MemPtrNew(bufLen + 1);
    return num;
