MACH(1) User Commands MACH(1)

mach - display the processor type of the current host


The mach command displays the processor-type of the current host.

arch(1), uname(1), attributes(7)

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 command is provided for compatibility with previous releases, but generally its use is discouraged.
