Question In Search of a Command

Hello,

There is a command out there that gives back info on your system; e.g. PentiumIII, etc.

I came across it a while back, but cannot find it now.

Does anyone know what that command is?

Thanks,

Radimus

I don't know what you're system you're using, but I'm on Mandrake, and the 'x' switch is invalid for uname. You might try uname -a but I doubt that will give you all the info you are looking for. I would try in your /proc directory. That holds all system info at least on this system. I don't know where that info is kept on other setups... I know HP-UX doesn't have the proc directory...
