UNAME(1)			  Korn Shell			      UNAME(1)

NAME
       uname - identify	the current system

SYNOPSIS
       uname [flags] [name ...]

DESCRIPTION
       By  default  uname writes the operating system name to standard output.
       When options are	specified, one	or  more  system  characteristics  are
       written	to  standard  output,  space separated,	on a single line. When
       more than one option is specified the output is in the  order  specfied
       by  the	-A option below.  Unsupported option values are	listed as [op-
       tion]].	If  any	 unknown  options  are	specified   then   the	 local
       /usr/bin/uname is called.

       If  any name operands are specified then	the sysinfo(2) values for each
       name are	listed,	separated  by  space,  on  one	line.	getconf(1),  a
       pre-existing  standard  interface, provides access to the same informa-
       tion; vendors should spend more time  using  standards  than  inventing
       them.

       Selected	information is printed in the same order as the	options	below.
