              print the alias (oldstable, stable, testing, unstable) relative to the distribution
              codename passed as an argument.  Only distribution codenames composed of lower case
              ASCII  letters are accepted, and if the distribution does not qualify as oldstable,
              stable, testing, or  unstable,  then  the  same  codename  passed  as  argument  is

              cannot be calculated, the string '(unknown)' is displayed.  Unless one of -c, -f or
              -r is specified, only the number of days will be displayed.
