osinfo-detect - Detect the operating system on installable media or trees
Examine the "PATH"
to determine what (if any) operating
system it is for, and whether it is installable or is a Live image.
By default "PATH"
will be interpreted as pointing to
media. To request examination of an install tree instead, the
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 ISO media (media, the default) or
install trees (tree)
The exit status will be 0 if an operating system was detected,
or 1 if none was found.
