NAME

       facter - Collect and display facts about the system

SYNOPSIS

       facter [options] [fact] ...

DESCRIPTION

       facter collects and displays facts about the current system.

       The  library  behind  Facter  is  easy  to  expand,  making  Facter an easy way to collect
       information about a system from within the shell or within Ruby.

       If no facts are specifically asked for, then all facts will be returned.

OPTIONS

       These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options  starting  with
       two dashes (`-').  A summary of options is included below.

       --yaml Emit facts in YAML format.

       --json Emit facts in JSON format.

       --puppet
              Load the Puppet libraries, thus allowing Facter to load Puppet-specific facts.

       --help Show summary of options.

       --version
              Show version of program.

       --debug
              Enable debugging.

       --trace
              Enable backtraces.

       --timing
              Enable timing.
