NAME uname - print name of current system SYNOPSIS uname [-aimnprsvX] uname [-S system_name] DESCRIPTION The uname utility prints information about the current sys- tem on the standard output. When options are specified, sym- bols representing one or more system characteristics will be written to the standard output.

Use of this option is discouraged. Use uname -p instead.
