Request: NetworkInterface::adapterName() #148

The NetworkInterface class provides two accessors to names: name() and displayName().

I would like to request that adapterName() be added to that list as some Windows network API's (DHCP is an example) use the AdapterName (GUID or LUID i believe) as input parameter.

I realise that there are helper functions for converting indexes to different names or identifiers but they are only available on Windows Vista or later.

On other operating systems I guess that the adapter name will be the same as name() and displayName() just as name() and displayName() are the same..

I'm fine with this but if you want it in 1.5.2 , you'll have to implement it yourself and send pull request.


I have submitted a pull request.

This is my first attempt at git so I hope I have done it correctly.

Looks good, I'll test it before 1.5.2 release.
