uname(2)							      uname(2)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     uname - get name of current UNIX system

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <sys/utsname.h>

     int uname(struct utsname *name);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     uname stores information identifying the current UNIX system in the
     structure pointed to by name.

     uname uses	the structure utsname defined in <sys/utsname.h> whose members

	  char sysname[SYS_NMLN];
	  char nodename[SYS_NMLN];
	  char release[SYS_NMLN];
	  char version[SYS_NMLN];
	  char machine[SYS_NMLN];

     uname returns a null-terminated character string naming the current IRIX
     system in the character array sysname.  Similarly,	nodename contains the
     name that the system is known by on a communications network.  release
     and version further identify the operating	system release and version.
     release has one of	the following forms:  m.n or m.n.a where m is the
     major release number, n is	the minor release number and a is the
     (optional)	maintenance level of the release; e.g.	3.2 or 3.2.1.  version
     contains the date and time	that the operating system was generated.  It
     has the form:  mmddhhmm.

     machine contains the type of CPU board that the IRIX system is running
     on, e.g.  IP6.

     EFAULT	    uname fails	if name	points to an invalid address.
