Unix-Uptime is Copyright (C) 2008-2014, Mike Kelly.

This is a simple module that allows you to get the current system uptime, in seconds, and the current load average.

On *BSD systems, this involves using an optional XS module, with a fallback on parsing the output of the 'syslog' command. If you wish to avoid building the XS module, set the 'NO_XS' environment variable to some true value before running perl Build.PL.

See the Unix::Uptime perldoc for more information.
