=head1 NAME

Perl::OSType - Map Perl operating system names to generic types

=head1 VERSION

version 1.010


  use Perl::OSType ':all';

  $current_type = os_type();
  $other_type = os_type('dragonfly'); # gives 'Unix'


Modules that provide OS-specific behaviors often need to know if
the current operating system matches a more generic type of
operating systems. For example, 'linux' is a type of 'Unix' operating system
and so is 'freebsd'.

This module provides a mapping between an operating system name as given by
C<$^O> and a more generic type.  The initial version is based on the OS type
mappings provided in L<Module::Build> and L<ExtUtils::CBuilder>.  (Thus,
Microsoft operating systems are given the type 'Windows' rather than 'Win32'.)

=head1 USAGE

No functions are exported by default. The export tag ":all" will export
all functions listed below.

=head2 os_type()

  $os_type = os_type();
  $os_type = os_type('MSWin32');

Returns a single, generic OS type for a given operating system name.  With no
arguments, returns the OS type for the current value of C<$^O>.  If the
operating system is not recognized, the function will return the empty string.

=head2 is_os_type()

  $is_windows = is_os_type('Windows');
  $is_unix    = is_os_type('Unix', 'dragonfly');

Given an OS type and OS name, returns true or false if the OS name is of the
given type.  As with C<os_type>, it will use the current operating system as a
default if no OS name is provided.
