AppConfig::Sys(3)     User Contributed Perl Documentation    AppConfig::Sys(3)

NAME
       AppConfig::Sys -	Perl5 module defining platform-specific	information
       and methods for other AppConfig::* modules.

SYNOPSIS
	   use AppConfig::Sys;
	   my $sys = AppConfig::Sys->new();

	   @fields = $sys->getpwuid($userid);
	   @fields = $sys->getpwnam($username);

OVERVIEW
       AppConfig::Sys is a Perl5 module	provides platform-specific information
       and operations as required by other AppConfig::*	modules.

       AppConfig::Sys is distributed as	part of	the AppConfig bundle.

DESCRIPTION
   USING THE AppConfig::Sys MODULE
       To import and use the AppConfig::Sys module the following line should
       appear in your Perl script:

	    use	AppConfig::Sys;

       AppConfig::Sys is implemented using object-oriented methods.  A new
       AppConfig::Sys object is	created	and initialised	using the
       AppConfig::Sys->new() method.  This returns a reference to a new
       AppConfig::Sys object.

	   my $sys = AppConfig::Sys->new();

       This will attempt to detect your	operating system and create a
       reference to a new AppConfig::Sys object	that is	applicable to your
       platform.  You may explicitly specify an	operating system name to
       override	this automatic detection:

	   $unix_sys = AppConfig::Sys->new("Unix");

       Alternatively, the package variable $AppConfig::Sys::OS can be set to
       an operating system name.  The valid operating system names are:	Win32,
       VMS, Mac, OS2 and Unix.	They are not case-specific.

   AppConfig::Sys METHODS
       AppConfig::Sys defines the following methods:

       getpwnam()
	   Calls the system function getpwnam()	if available and returns the
	   result.  Returns undef if not available.  The can_getpwnam()	method
	   can be called to determine if this function is available.

       getpwuid()
	   Calls the system function getpwuid()	if available and returns the
	   result.  Returns undef if not available.  The can_getpwuid()	method
	   can be called to determine if this function is available.
