Perl::osnames - List possible $^O ($OSNAME) values, with description
This document describes version 0.11 of Perl::osnames (from Perl distribution Perl- osnames), released on 2014-12-19.
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.
None are exported by default, but they are exportable. $data An arrayref of records (arrayrefs), each structured as: [$name, \@tags, $description]
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.
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".
