Subject: Re: [Caml-list] uname for Ocaml
An alternative would be to use

  #load "unix.cma"

  let uname() =                                                      
    let (inc, outc) = Unix.open_process "uname" in  
    let name = input_line inc in                  
    close_in inc;
    close_out outc;
    name;;

Here's a more general way to capture the stdout of a Unix call:

  let syscall cmd =                                    
    let (inc, outc) = Unix.open_process cmd in  
    let buf = Buffer.create 16 in                       
    (try while true do Buffer.add_channel buf inc 1 done with _ -> ());
    close_in inc;
    close_out outc;
    Buffer.contents buf;;
