how to determine which kind of unix is used

[COLOR=Sienna]how can i determine which type of unix
(solaris ,AIX,HP-UX...) is installed on the machine that i am working?

go through the man pages of uname,
you would get the system information

uname -a
will give you a lot of information, as matrixmadhan states, check the manual page.

If you're using linux, there is normally a file along the lines of
/etc/*release
which will show info regarding which version of a particular distro you're using.

Cheers
