Um, I don't think that's what you want.
Remember, Solaris runs on X86, and Linux runs on SPARC hardware...so you've got
potential confusion here...
You probably want "uname -s", which returns the OS type. Here's a quick,
Platform uname -s
x86, linux Linux
sun4u, Solaris SunOS
IP35, Irix IRIX64
x86_64, Linux Linux
x86, NetBSD NetBSD
Note that Solaris is a subset of SunOS, as far as uname is concerned...I don't
have a machine running SunOS available to test what "uname -s" returns there...
This will also work (FSVO "work" on Windows machines running Cygwin).
Oh, you're right -- we were using this to switch some optimized assembly
code, or rather, to use optimized MMX assembly or plain old C, in
certain bits of a graphics project. My bad.
