Crossplatform C++ Arch detection

You can simply get current arch usign following code, where on windows can be used GetNativeSystemInfo() and on macos and linux uname() function:

std::string GetOSArch()
{
#ifdef CPK_OS_WIN
    SYSTEM_INFO info;
    GetNativeSystemInfo(&info);
    switch (info.wProcessorArchitecture) {
        case PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE_AMD64:
            return "x86_64";
        case PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE_INTEL:
            return "x86";
        case PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE_IA64:
            return "ia64";
    };
#endif
#if defined(CPK_OS_LINUX) || defined(CPK_OS_MACOS)
    long ret = -1;
    struct utsname u;

    if (ret == -1)
        ret = uname(&u);
    if (ret != -1) {
        if (strlen(u.machine) == 4 && u.machine[0] == 'i'
                && u.machine[2] == '8' && u.machine[3] == '6')
            return std::string("x86");
        if (strcmp(u.machine, "amd64") == 0) // Solaris
            return std::string("x86_64");

        return std::string(u.machine);
    }
#endif
    return "";
}

OS detection can be done for example on cmake side or with other definition like __WIN32:

1
2
3
4
5

9
if(WIN32)
    add_definitions(-DCPK_OS_WIN)
else()
    if (${CMAKE_SYSTEM_NAME} MATCHES "Darwin")
        add_definitions(-DCPK_OS_MACOS)
    else()
        add_definitions(-DCPK_OS_LINUX)
    endif()
endif()
