The "arch" command line tool is used to print the machine architecture information of the current system.

When executed without any arguments, "arch" will display the architecture of the system running the command. It typically displays the architecture name in a short form, such as "x86_64" for 64-bit Intel or AMD CPUs, "arm" for ARM-based devices, "ppc64le" for PowerPC 64-bit little-endian, and so on.

The "arch" command is often used in shell scripts to determine the system architecture and take appropriate actions based on the architecture-specific code paths. It helps ensure compatibility and portability of scripts across different architectures.
