= Description A Ruby interface for getting operating system information. The name comes from the Unix 'uname' command, but this library works on MS Windows as well. = Prerequisites ffi 1.0 or later = Installation gem install sys-uname # If that doesn't work and you're on Windows try this: gem install sys-uname --platform universal-mingw32 = Synopsis require 'sys/uname' include Sys p Uname.uname = Solaris Notes Users on SunOS get several extra methods: architecture, platform, hw_serial, hw_provider, srpc_domain, isa_list, and dhcp_cache. = BSD flavors, including OS X Users on BSD platforms get the extra Uname.model method. = HP-UX Notes HP-UX users get the extra Uname.id_number method. This is actually a String, not a Fixnum, because that's how it's defined in the utsname struct. = MS Windows Notes The C version for Windows has been completely scrapped in favor of an OLE plus WMI approach. It is pure Ruby. Please see the MSDN documentation for the Win32_OperatingSystem class for a complete list of what each of the UnameStruct members mean. = Documentation For more details, see the 'uname.txt' file under the 'doc' directory.
