MirOS Manual: uname(1)

UNAME(1)                     BSD Reference Manual                     UNAME(1)


     uname - Print operating system name


     uname [-almnprsv]


     The uname utility writes symbols representing one or more system charac-
     teristics to the standard output.

     The following options are available:

     -a      Behave as though all of the options -lmnrsv were specified.

     -l      print the operating system patchlevel.

     -m      print the machine hardware name.

     -n      print the nodename (the nodename may be a name that the system is
             known by to a communications network).

     -p      print the machine processor architecture name.

     -r      print the operating system release.

     -s      print the operating system name.

     -v      print the operating system version.

     If no options are specified, uname prints the operating system name as if
     the -s option had been specified.


     arch(1), hostname(1), machine(1), uname(3)


     The uname utility conforms to IEEE Std 1003.2-1992 ("POSIX.2"). The -l
     option is an extension to the standard; its presence in the -a output is
     conformant as it is an expanded operating system release. The -p option
     is an extension to the standard.


     The uname command appeared in 4.4BSD.
