Determine Unix Version

I would have expected to see it after logon, but all I get are some Copyright-messages...

I know it's some HP-UX, but I would like to know the version-number

Tnx in advance!

Checked out uname in man-pages and came up with the following:

-r Display the current release level of the operating system.
When executed:

> uname -r
