NAME

       osinfo-detect - Detect the operating system on installable media or trees

SYNOPSIS

       osinfo-detect [OPTIONS...] PATH|URI

DESCRIPTION

       Examine the "PATH" or "URI" to determine what (if any) operating system it is for, and
       whether it is installable or is a Live image.  By default "PATH" or "URI" will be
       interpreted as pointing to ISO media. To request examination of an install tree instead,
       the option "--type=tree" should be given.

       The output information is formatted for humans; to obtain machine readable output, the
       option "--format=env" should be given to produce shell-like key/value pairs.

OPTIONS

       --format=plain|env
               Switch between human readable output (plain, the default) or machine readable
               output (env).

       --type=media|tree
               Switch between looking for CD/DVD ISO media (media, the default) or install trees
               (tree)

EXIT STATUS

       The exit status will be 0 if an operating system was detected, or 1 if none was found.
