Map Perl operating system names to generic types Maintained by:perl@FreeBSD.org Port Added: 03 Mar 2011 18:36:15 Also Listed In:perl5 License: ART10 GPLv1
Modules that provide OS-specific behaviors often need to know if the
current operating system matches a more generic type of operating
systems. For example, 'linux' is a type of 'Unix' operating system and
so is 'freebsd'.
This module provides a mapping between an operating system name as given
by $^O and a more generic type.
