Summary: Map Perl operating system names to generic types

Modules that provide OS-specific behaviors often need to know if the
current operating system matches a more generic type of operating systems.
For example, 'Linux' is a type of 'Unix' operating system and so is

This module provides a mapping between an operating system name as given by
'$^O' and a more generic type. The initial version is based on the OS type
mappings provided in Module::Build and ExtUtils::CBuilder
. (Thus, Microsoft operating systems are given the type 'Windows'
rather than 'Win32'.)
