       lsb_release - print distribution-specific information


       lsb_release [options]


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

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


       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.


       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.
