NAME         top

       dpkg-vendor - queries information about distribution vendors

SYNOPSIS         top

       dpkg-vendor [option...] command

DESCRIPTION         top

       dpkg-vendor is a tool to query information about vendors listed
       in /usr/local/etc/dpkg/origins.
       /usr/local/etc/dpkg/origins/default contains information about
       the current vendor.

COMMANDS         top

       --is vendor
              Exits with 0 if the current vendor is vendor. Otherwise
              exits with 1.

       --derives-from vendor
              Exits with 0 if the current vendor distribution is a
              derivative of vendor, otherwise exits with 1.  It uses the
              Parent field to browse all ancestors of the current
              vendor.

       --query field
              Print on standard output the value of the vendor-specific
              field for the current vendor.

       --help Show the usage message and exit.

       --version
              Show the version and exit.

OPTIONS         top

       --vendor vendor
              Assumes the current vendor is vendor instead of
              discovering it with the DEB_VENDOR environment variable or
              /usr/local/etc/dpkg/origins/default.

ENVIRONMENT         top

       DEB_VENDOR
              This setting defines the current vendor. If not set, it
              will discover the current vendor by reading
              /usr/local/etc/dpkg/origins/default.

       DPKG_COLORS
              Sets the color mode (since dpkg 1.18.5).  The currently
              accepted values are: auto (default), always and never.

       DPKG_NLS
              If set, it will be used to decide whether to activate
              Native Language Support, also known as
              internationalization (or i18n) support (since dpkg
              1.19.0).  The accepted values are: 0 and 1 (default).
