Hey there! My name is Fotis Koutoulakis, and I am a young Computer Science Student from Greece.

I am extremely interested in learning how computers work. As a result, I spend a great deal of time with anything that has to do with Computer Infrastructure: Compilers, Computer Architecture, Programming Languages, Operating Systems and Virtual Machines.

My experience primarily lies in Unix like operating systems and when it comes to programming languages I feel particularly comfortable with C and Python. I also have exposure to C++ and Go, and can use them for work, but I am less experienced in them than the other two I previously mentioned.

I am also an Free Software developer. My time is usually spent studying and developing for the GNU Compiler Collection. When I am not working on GCC, I may spend my time on personal projects (usually compilers I have forked and test ideas on, or self built Unix like clone kernels), or study the structure of several projects (like for example LLVM, or GDB, or GNU Bash, or Operating Systems and kernels like Linux, or FreeBSD), or read books related to Computer Architecture, Operating Systems or Compiler design and programming languages.

@Graeme I want to remove my downvote for this answer, but the system says that it needs to be edited, because my vote is locked. Please proceed with doing one minor edit, so I can change my vote on that.

@Graeme While I still disagree with this, the way you put it is generating genuine confusion. So I can now understand why you interpreted it that way, therefore, removing my downvote.

@Graeme Even if it was you, that would be totally ok with me. I'm not here for rep hunting, I'm here to help and get helped. In that spirit, I will say again, that if you consider my answer not helpful please downvote it.

comment How to know in which distribution is present one command
@slm Sounds fair, honestly, but then again if the wording of the question itself is ambiguous, then we should look at the title of the question. The title clearly asks how can someone find out if a "command" (binary) is available at his distribution.

@Graeme I don't know what you find shocking about it, I only made it's meaning more clear. Anyway, that's why I said, roll it back if you disagree. I'm curious however, what is your intrepretation of the question?

dude, please, don't take it personally. I don't downvote out of malice or revenge or anything. I downvote questions that I perceive to contain wrong or irrelevant information. In that spirit, if you consider my answer to contain wrong/irrelevant information, please downvote it to oblivion.

@Graeme It doesn't. The op's question isn't about what distro he is running. It's about how he can find out if a particular command (binary) is available at his system.

-1. How does this answer the op's question? The op is asking if there is a way to find out if a particular binary is on his system. lsb_release prints details about the particular distribution, such as its codename, etc. Apart from that, even if you check out your lsb version against the online specifications, you still may be missing out on extra binaries that are not present in the lsb specification. Not to mention that this command isn't omnipresent. My fedora 19 box doesn't have it.
