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 ‘FreeBSD’.

This module provides a mapping between an operating system name as given by $^O and a more generic type.
