NAME

       Perl::osnames - List possible $^O ($OSNAME) values, with description

VERSION

       This document describes version 0.11 of Perl::osnames (from Perl distribution Perl-
       osnames), released on 2014-12-19.

DESCRIPTION

       This package contains $data which lists possible values of $^O along with description for
       each. It also provides some helper functions.

   Tags
       ·   unix

           Unix-like operating systems. This currently excludes beos/haiku.

       ·   bsd

           BSD-derived Unix operating systems.

       ·   sysv

           SysV-derived Unix operating systems.

       ·   posix

           For POSIX-compliant OSes, including fully-, mostly-, and largely-compliant ones
           (source: <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/POSIX>).

           From what I can gather, dec_osf is not POSIX compliant, although there is a posix
           package for it.

VARIABLES

       None are exported by default, but they are exportable.

   $data
       An arrayref of records (arrayrefs), each structured as:

        [$name, \@tags, $description]

FUNCTIONS

       None are exported by default, but they are exportable.

   is_posix([ $os ]) => bool
       Check whether $os (defaults to $^O if not specified) is POSIX (checked by the existence of
       "posix" tag on the OS's record in $data). Will return 0, 1, or undef if $os is unknown.

   is_unix([ $os ]) => bool
       Check whether $os (defaults to $^O if not specified) is Unix (checked by the existence of
       "unix" tag on the OS's record in $data). Will return 0, 1, or undef if $os is unknown.

SEE ALSO

       perlvar

       Config

       Perl::OSType, a core module. You should probably use this module instead.  Currently the
       difference between this module and Perl::osnames: 1) Perl::osnames currently doesn't list
       beos/haiku as Unix, but POSIX; 2) Perl::osnames provides more tags (like sysv, bsd, posix)
       and description.

       Devel::Platform::Info

       The output of "perl -V"

       App::osnames, the original reason for Perl::osnames. With this CLI tool you can grep OS
       names by name, tag, or description, e.g. "osnames solaris" or "osnames posix".
