NAME

System::Info::Base - Baseclass for system information.

ATTRIBUTES

cpu

cpu_type

ncpu

os

host

DESCRIPTION

System::Info::Base->new()

Return a new instance for $^O

$si->prepare_sysinfo

This method should be overridden by platform specific subclasses.

The generic information is taken from POSIX::uname().

$self->_hostname => (POSIX::uname)[1]
$self->_os => join " - " => (POSIX::uname)[0,2]
$self->_osname => (POSIX::uname)[0]
$self->_osvers => (POSIX::uname)[2]
$self->_cpu_type => (POSIX::uname)[4]
$self->_cpu => (POSIX::uname)[4]
$self->_cpu_count => ""

$si->get_os

Returns $self->_os

$si->get_hostname

Returns $self->_hostname

$si->get_cpu_type

Returns $self->_cpu_type

$si->get_cpu

Returns $self->_cpu

$si->get_cpu_count

Returns $self->_cpu_count

$si->get_core_count

Returns $self->get_cpu_count as a number

If get_cpu_count returns 2 [8 cores], get_core_count returns 8

$si->get_dist_name

Returns the name of the distribution.

si_uname (@args)

This class gathers most of the uname(1) info, make a comparable version. Takes almost the same arguments:

    a for all (can be omitted)
    n for nodename
    s for os name and version
    m for cpu name
    c for cpu count
    p for cpu_type

$si->old_dump

Just a backward compatible way to dump the object (for test suite).
