A quick Google on ‘gestalt mnam’ will turn up the Mac OS Gestalt Manager Reference, which is what the gestalt object is based around (it just calls Gestalt on Mac OS, on Windows it does an emulation of a couple of common selectors).

mnam is gestaltUserVisibleMachineName: "Returns a StringPtr to a user visible machine name."

That help?
