Sys::CPU - Perl extension for getting CPU information. Currently only number of CPU's supported.
use Sys::CPU; $number_of_cpus = Sys::CPU::cpu_count(); printf("I have %d CPU's\n",$number_of_cpus); print " Speed : ",Sys::CPU::cpu_clock(),"\n"; print " Type : ",Sys::CPU::cpu_type(),"\n";
In responce to a post on perlmonks.org, a module for counting the number of CPU's on a system. Support has now also been added for type of CPU and clock speed. While much of the code is from UNIX::Processors, win32 support has been added (but not tested).
