Discussion

%SS_GETHOSTNAME returns the local host name in h_name.

The form of h_name depends on the system and its particular implementation. For example, it may return a simple host name such as socrates or a fully‑qualified domain name such as socrates.synergex.com.

If SS_ENULL is returned, the system error code can be returned by immediately calling %SYSERR.
