I want to use the Browser and OS detection script to manage my css but I want the script to tell me if the OS is Windows or Mac I dont need the breakdown of which windos OS.

I think I should be able to just comment out some lines but it is excaping me.

Could someone please help?

It's very easy to do that.

On the script, scroll down to line 268 (assuming you haven't cut off the comments on top:

Make this change:

:: Code ::

// get os data, mac os x test requires browser/version information, this is a change from older scripts
      $a_os_data = which_os( $browser_user_agent, $browser_name, $version_number );
      $os = $a_os_data[0];// os name, abbreviated
//add these lines
      if ( ( $os == 'win' ) || ( $os == 'nt' ) )
         $os = 'win';
// and you'll get what you need to happen
$os_number = $a_os_data[1];// os number or version if available

Now you have the $os variable containing only the following:

win, mac, lin, unix, or '', unknown.

You can ignore the $os version number if you don't need to use it.

Here's a sample of this:
:: Code ::

if ( browser_detection( 'os' ) == 'win' )
load css file one....
elseif (browser_detection('os') == 'mac' )
load css file 2
load default css file

does this answer your question? if not, just post again, give a code sample if something is not working for you, thanks, Jeftd
