OT - getting the computer's name under OSX

Flexi -

"put $USERNAME && $COMPUTERNAME" doesn't work for me in MacOSX 10.3.5 
Panther.  I can do "put $USER" ($USER is in the Variable Watcher list). 
Looks like the "function ComputerName" may be the tightest cross-platform 
way to get the host.

Er... "put $USERNAME && $COMPUTERNAME"? Or is this not OSX  compatible?
