NOTES

mach and uname -p return equivalent values; therefore, Independent Software Vendors (ISV) and others who need to ascertain processor type are encouraged to use uname with the -p option instead of the mach command. The mach com- mand is provided for compatibility with previous releases, but generally its use is discouraged. SunOS 5.8 Last change: 18 Jan 1996 1
