This section lists the various procedures Guile provides for accessing information about the system it runs on.
The following procedures accept an object as returned by
and return a selected component.
Note that most varieties of Unix are considered to be simply "UNIX".

or absence of that specific feature. The return value of
software-type should only be used for this purpose when there is
no other easy or unambiguous way of detecting such features.
