dpkg-vendor - queries information about distribution vendors
dpkg-vendor [option...] command
dpkg-vendor is a tool to query information about vendors listed in /etc/dpkg/origins. /etc/dpkg/origins/default contains information about the current vendor.
--is vendor Exits with 0 if the current vendor is vendor. Otherwise exits with 1. --derives-from vendor Exits with 0 if the current vendor distribution is a derivative of vendor, otherwise exits with 1. It uses the Parent field to browse all ancestors of the current vendor. --query field Print on standard output the value of the vendor-specific field for the current vendor. --help Show the usage message and exit. --version Show the version and exit.
--vendor vendor Assumes the current vendor is vendor instead of discovering it with the DEB_VENDOR environment variable or /etc/dpkg/origins/default.
DEB_VENDOR This setting defines the current vendor. If not set, it will discover the current vendor by reading /etc/dpkg/origins/default. DPKG_COLORS Sets the color mode (since dpkg 1.18.5). The currently accepted values are: auto (default), always and never. DPKG_NLS If set, it will be used to decide whether to activate Native Language Support, also known as internationalization (or i18n) support (since dpkg 1.19.0). The accepted values are: 0 and 1 (default).
