POSIX uname()


In this sample application, the POSIX uname() function is used to acquire system information and it is output to the console. Additionally, uname is added as a shell command and system information is displayed according to the option(s) provided for the command.

Building and Running

This project outputs to the console. It can be built and executed on QEMU as follows:

west build -b qemu_x86 samples/posix/uname
west build -t run

For comparison, to build directly for your host OS if it is POSIX compliant (for ex. Linux):

cd samples/posix/uname
make -f

The make output file will be located in samples/posix/uname/build.
