DESCRIPTION
     The following commands will return a true value  (exit  code
     of  0)  if you are using an instruction set that the command
     name indicates.

     sun             True if you are on a Sun system.



     iAPX286         True if you  are  on  a  computer  using  an
                     iAPX286 processor.



     i386            True if you  are  on  a  computer  using  an
                     iAPX386 processor.



     pdp11            True if you are  on  a  PDP-11/45  or  PDP-
                     11/70.



     sparc           True if  you  are  on  a  computer  using  a
                     SPARC-family processor.



     u3b             True if you are on a 3B20 computer.



     u3b2            True if you are on a 3B2 computer.



     u3b5            True if you are on a 3B5 computer.



     u3b15           True if you are on a 3B15 computer.



     vax             True if you are  on  a  VAX-11/750  or  VAX-

     The commands that do not apply will  return  a  false  (non-
     zero) value.  These commands are often used within makefiles
     (see make(1S)) and shell scripts  (see  sh(1))  to  increase
     portability.
