How to identify a Raspberry Pi’s model number

I have several different little Raspberry Pi computers, and though there are subtle differences between them if you can’t remember what they are then you will be glad to know that you can easily check the model number from the comand line in the recent versions of the operating system.

echo $(cat /proc/device-tree/model | tr -d '\0')
Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Rev 1.2
