OSINFO-DETECT.C(1)	    Virtualization Support	    OSINFO-DETECT.C(1)

NAME
       osinfo-detect - Detect the operating system on installable media	or
       trees

SYNOPSIS
       osinfo-detect [OPTIONS...] PATH|URI

DESCRIPTION
       Examine 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 ISO media.
       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.

OPTIONS
       --format=plain|env
	       Switch between human readable output (plain, the	default) or
	       machine readable	output (env).

       --type=media|tree
	       Switch between looking for CD/DVD ISO media (media, the
	       default)	or install trees (tree)

EXIT STATUS
       The exit	status will be 0 if an operating system	was detected, or 1 if
       none was	found.
