Yes, the mex is for Windows only for now, but the m file works for different operating system by using system command.

The code does not work for different Operating Systems, just Windows NT (my own code is no different:-)
It finds multiple MAC addresses because a computer may have several network interfaces. Mac addresses are use by Token Ring, Ethernet and WiFi networks and VPN software too.
