.TH lsb_release 1
.SH NAME
lsb_release \- print distribution-specific information
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B lsb_release
.I "[options]"
.SH DESCRIPTION
The
.B lsb_release
command provides certain LSB (Linux Standard Base) and
distribution-specific information.
.PP
If no options are given, the \fI\-v\fP option is assumed.
.SH OPTIONS
The program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long
options starting with two dashes (`\-\-').
A summary of options are included below.
.TP
.B \-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.
.TP
.B \-i, \-\-id
Display the distributor's ID.
.TP
.B \-d, \-\-description
Display a description of the currently installed distribution.
.TP
.B \-r, \-\-release
Display the release number of the currently installed distribution.
.TP
.B \-c, \-\-codename
Display the code name of the currently installed distribution.
.TP
.B \-a, \-\-all
Display all of the above information.
.TP
.B \-s, \-\-short
Use the short output format for any information displayed.  This
format omits the leading header(s).
.TP
.B \-h, \-\-help
Show summary of options.
.SH NOTES
This is a reimplementation of the 
.B 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.
