NAME

       lsb_release - print distribution-specific information

SYNOPSIS

       lsb_release [options]

DESCRIPTION

       The  lsb_release command provides certain LSB (Linux Standard Base) and
       distribution-specific information.

       If no options are given, the -v option is assumed.

OPTIONS

       The program follows the  usual  GNU  command  line  syntax,  with  long
       options  starting  with  two  dashes  (‘--’).  A summary of options are
       included below.

       -v, --version
              Show  the  version  of  the  LSB  against  which  your   current
              installation  is compliant.  The version is expressed as a colon
              separated list of LSB module descriptions.

       -i, --id
              Display the distributor’s ID.

       -d, --description
              Display a description of the currently installed distribution.

       -r, --release
              Display  the  release  number   of   the   currently   installed
              distribution.

       -c, --codename
              Display the code name of the currently installed distribution.

       -a, --all
              Display all of the above information.

       -s, --short
              Use the short output format for any information displayed.  This
              format omits the leading header(s).

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options.

NOTES

       This is a reimplementation of the lsb_release command provided  by  the
       Free  Standards  Group.   Any bugs are solely the responsibility of the
       author below.

       Detection of systems using a mix of packages from various distributions
       or releases is something of a black art; the current heuristic tends to
       assume that the installation is of the earliest distribution  which  is
       still being used by .B apt but that heuristic is subject to error.
