FILES
       If the installation is LSB compliant,  the  "/etc/lsb-release"  file  should  contain  the
       LSB_VERSION  field.   The value of the field should be a colon separated list of supported
       module versions indicating the LSB specification modules to which the installation is com-
       pliant. If the installation is not compliant, the above field should not be present.

       Optional fields are DISTRIB_ID, DISTRIB_RELEASE, DISTRIB_CODENAME, DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION and
       can be used to override information which is parsed from the "/etc/distrib-release" file.

       If the "/etc/lsb-release.d" directory exists, it is searched for filenames which are taken
       as additional module-version strings to add to LSB_VERSION.

       The  "/etc/distrib-release" file contains a description line which is parsed to get infor-
       mation (especially on currently non-LSB compliant systems).

       The required line style is:
       "Distributor release x.x (Codename)"

       Where Distributor can be a couple of words, but then concatenated (i.e. Linux Foo BarLinux
       Linux -> FooBarLinux),
       x.x  starts  with a digit followed by any non-blank characters, Codename will also be con-
       catenated (blanks cleanup only).

       release may not be used as a keyword in DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION if you don't want to  override
       "/etc/distrib-release" data.

       Notice:	To  support  the Debian distributions' lack of information (see "/etc/debian_ver-
       sion" file) some have been directly added into the lsb_release script.

EXAMPLES
       If the "/etc/lsb-release" file contains:

       LSB_VERSION="core-2.0-ia64:core-2.0-noarch"
       DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="I enjoy using my distrib"

       and the "/etc/lsb-release.d" directory contains:

       graphics-2.0-ia64    graphics-2.0-noarch

       and the "/etc/foobar-release" file contains:

       My Linux Distrib release 1.0RC4 (TryIt)

       Then the results of various options will be:

       $ ./lsb_release --all
       LSB Version:    core-2.0-ia64:core-2.0-noarch:graphics-2.0-ia64:graphics-2.0-noarch
       Distributor ID: MyDistrib
       Description:    I enjoy using my distrib
       Release:        1.0RC4
       Codename:       TryIt

       $ ./lsb_release -a -s
       1.0 MyDistrib "I enjoy using my distrib" 1.0RC4 TryIt

       If the "/etc/lsb-release" file is absent (indicating this is not an LSB compliant  distri-
       bution), the result will be:

       $ ./lsb_release -a
       LSB Version:    n/a
       Distributor ID: MyDistrib
       Description:    My Linux Distrib release 1.0RC4 (TryIt)
       Release:        1.0RC4
       Codename:       TryIt
