NAME

System::Info - Factory for system specific information objects

SYNOPSIS

    use System::Info;

    my $si = System::Info->new;

    printf "Hostname:              %s\n", $si->host;
    printf "Number of CPU's:       %s\n", $si->ncpu;
    printf "Processor type:        %s\n", $si->cpu_type; # short
    printf "Processor description: %s\n", $si->cpu;      # long
    printf "OS and version:        %s\n", $si->os;

or

    use System::Info qw( sysinfo );
    printf "[%s]\n", sysinfo ();

or

    $ perl -MSystem::Info=si_uname -le print+si_uname

DESCRIPTION

System::Info tries to present system-related information, like number of CPU's, architecture, OS and release related information in a system-independent way. This releases the user of this module of the need to know if the information comes from Windows, Linux, HP-UX, AIX, Solaris, Irix, or VMS, and if the architecture is i386, x64, pa-risc2, or arm.

METHODS

System::Info->new

Factory method, with fallback to the information in POSIX::uname ().

sysinfo

sysinfo returns a string with host, os and cpu_type.

si_uname (@args)

This class gathers most of the uname(1) info, make a comparable version. Takes almost the same arguments:

    a for all (can be omitted)
    n for nodename
    s for os name and version
    m for cpu name
    c for cpu count
    p for cpu_type
