asked on

Perl module to find os type, version !!!

I know that $^O and $Config{$OSNAME) will give the name of the OS (MSWin32 or Linux), but it is not a complete name. I am looking for a single perl module which can display the complete details like for example:

Windows NT 2000
Windows Server 2008 R2
Windows XP SP2
Mac OSX 10.5
Ubuntu 10.10

Is there is a perl module which can give the complete details like above and simply MSWin32 or Linux, which is what $^O variable outputs?
