Projects / Facter


Facter is a simple cross-platform library for determining basic facts about an operating system, like the operating system name, IP address, or MAC address. It supports multiple mechanisms for resolving a given fact, and these mechanisms can be restricted to only working on specified operating systems or operating system releases.
