> In theory, you could also use perl -V:uname to derive just that string. But it didn't work for me though the other variables from perl -V do.

uname: This variable is used internally by Configure to determine the full pathname (if any) of the uname program. After Configure runs, the value is reset to a plain "uname" and is not useful.

myuname: The output of 'uname -a' if available, otherwise the hostname. The whole thing is then lower-cased and slashes and single quotes are removed.

There are a few of the other %Config / -V: entries that have the "my" versions, as listed in the glossary near myuname . And you can find others that have "is not useful" in their description, indicating that the $Config{xxx} or -V:xxx will not be useful. (edit: Though their "is not useful" assessment doesn't always match my experience: on Strawberry perl, 'make' stays with either dmake (for older versions) or gmake (for more recent strawberries), and is useful.)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
