Python 2.7.11 (default, Mar  4 2016, 12:29:39) [C] on aix5

>>> import sysconfig
>>> sysconfig.is_python_build()
>>> import distutils.util
>>> distutils.util.get_platform()
>>> import os
>>> os.uname()
('AIX', 'x064', '3', '5', '00C291F54C00')
>>> import platform
>>> platform.architecture()
('64bit', '')
>>> import os, sys
>>> sys.maxsize
>>> 2**32
