Re: Version & Distribution identification
Here's the LSB version and distribution identification proposal
rewritten from using a file into a command that takes standard options
(makes it easier to handle translations).
There will be a program called lsb_release in /bin and it will accept
the following arguments:
Display version of LSB against which distribution is compliant. This
would be a numerical value (ie containing only digit and '.' characters,
eg 1.0, or 2.0.1 etc)
Display string id of distributor. This is a single word containing
only alphanumeric characters (eg RedHat, Debian, Caldera, Corel).
Diplay single line text description of distribution (and could change
depending on the locale settings).
Display release number of distribution. This would be a numerical
Display all of the above information
Is it necessary to also specify a C library api for the above?
