  Actually it's very rare for it to contain it.

  There's no standard C or C++ function to do that. I'm not even sure
there's a POSIX function to do that (although there might be, as POSIX
as tons of things). I'm not even sure the OS is in any way required to
keep/provide this information to the application.
