NAMEosinfo-detect - Detect the operating system on installable media or trees
DESCRIPTIONExamine the "PATH" or "URI" to determine what (if any) operating system it is for, and whether it is installable or is a Live image. By default "PATH" or "URI" will be interpreted as pointing to
ISOmedia. To request examination of an install tree instead, the option "--type=tree" should be given.
The output information is formatted for humans; to obtain machine readable output, the option "--format=env" should be given to produce shell-like key/value pairs.
- Switch between human readable output (plain, the default) or machine readable output (env).
Switch between looking for CD/DVD ISOmedia (media, the default) or install trees (tree)
EXIT STATUSThe exit status will be 0 if an operating system was detected, or 1 if none was found.
