AutoLisp-how to get current layer name ?

Can anyone tell me how to get the current layer name using
Autolisp?
I am writting a little AutoLisp program that first saves the
users current layer name, then resets the layer to a different name and then
does various things. Then I want to reset the
layer the user had when the program was run. I know how
to set a layer to a particular name, just don't know how to
get the current layer name.
Thanks

(getvar "CELAYER")
.........I think. It's just the variable name. I'm almost sure it's either CELAYER or CLAYER.
You can use getvar to check, even.
Command: getvar ? *layer*
Will list all variables with "layer" in their name.

Well the rest of us, type Setvar ansver ? hit enter twice and look thru page after page of most all system var's with this feeling ; "what was the bloody name for that var! ;)) Then somtimes Atomsfamily is needed to check "what's the name of that bloody function". P.C.
