Yes, please. Of course, researching this issue led me to the following:
User Commands uname(1)
uname - print name of current system
The following options are supported:
-m Print the machine hardware name (class). Use
of this option is discouraged; use uname -p
instead. See NOTES section below.
-p Print the current host's ISA or processor
the `config.guess' code, of course, uses `uname -m`.
It would seem more straight forward to try to use `uname -p`
straight off, rather than convert the -m output into -p
output, but I also suppose it would also be much like pulling
either a loose thread on a sweater or several teeth. After
all, `uname -p` wasn't around in 1983... ;-)
