Finding number of CPUs.

Is there any way to find the number of CPUs in Linux. The sar command (sar -cuq 5 ) gives the average values of all the CPUs present. Is there any other command or system file from where I can get the individual CPU count and its values. Plz help me.

Thanks and Regards,

I am on a one-processor machine right now but you can look in the proc directory

ls /proc | grep cpu

cat /proc/cpuinfo
