ARCH(1)                    OpenBSD Reference Manual                    ARCH(1)

     arch, machine - print architecture type

     arch [-ks]
     machine [-a]

     The arch and machine command displays the machine's architecture in
     slightly different ways.  arch by default displays the application archi-
     tecture, defined by both the operating system and the instruction set ar-
     chitecture, while machine displays the kernel architecture (without the
     operating system part).  Note that both commands output the target archi-
     tecture as opposed to uname(1) which describes the host.  This is useful
     for dynamic discovery of the target architecture in build or configura-
     tion scripts needing to work in cross-compilation environments.

     The following options are available to arch:

     -k      Display the kernel architecture instead of application architec-

     -s      Display the chosen architecture in a short form, i.e. without the
             operating system prefixed.

     The machine command accepts this option:

     -a      Display the application architecture instead of the kernel archi-


     The arch command is currently under development.
