     uname — Print operating system name


     uname [-amnprsv]


     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 -mnrsv were specified.

     -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.


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


     The uname utility conforms to IEEE Std 1003.2-1992 (“POSIX.2”).  The -p

     option is an extension to the standard.
