I created a Peppermint 6 virtual machine yesterday, and today I wanted to take it for a spin, but I needed an excuse to test it out. So I used it to do some shell scripting, and ended up making Pepper Checker.

Pepper Checker 1.0 Stable:
Pepper Checker is version info tool for Peppermint. It displays which version of Peppermint you're running. It uses the format "OS Release Version" (eg: Peppermint 6 AMD64), but the output can be limited to specific details.

- Interactive mode
- Non-interactive mode
- Split into pieces to make it easier for third party tools to interact with it.
- User can choose to produce the full output, or exclude parts of it.
- By default outputs to stdout, but can also output to a file.

Example Commands:
These examples assume Pepper Checker was installed to the recommended location "/opt/pepper-checker", if not, substitute the appropriate paths, and append the location option.

- Full output:
bash /opt/pepper-checker/pepper-checker-cli --task="1"
- Output only the release number:
bash /opt/pepper-checker/pepper-checker-cli --task="1" --displayos="n" --displayversion="n"

Pepper Checker 1.0 Stable DEB For Peppermint 6 AMD64:
This is a debian package of Pepper Checker 1.0 Stable, built for Peppermint 6 AMD64. It doesn't conform to the strict standards set forth by the default Ubuntu, or Debian repositories, but it does the job. The code has been edited slightly so that it will not prompt for a location (it knows where it's supposed to be), but the help page doesn't reflect this. Unlike with the normal version of Pepper Checker, you will not need to specify the path to the script when executing it. If Bash is your default shell (it is unless you've changed it), you don't need to preface the command with "bash". You also don't need to specify the path to script since it Bash should know where it is. I would suggest using the ZIP version of Pepper Checker when possible, as that is the main version. Other package types like this are an after thought.

There is more than one way to get a debian package installed/uninstalled, but here's one way to do it.

Steps To Install Pepper Checker From DEB Using Gdebi On Peppermint 6 AMD64:
1. Download the DEB file, and compare the checksums if you're into that type of thing.
2. In your terminal type:
sudo gdebi ~/Downloads/pepper-checker_1.0-1.deb
Substitute "~/Downloads/" for the path to the DEB.

Steps To Uninstall Pepper Checker From DEB Using Apt-Get On Peppermint 6 AMD64:
1. In Terminal type:
sudo apt-get purge pepper-checker
If you want to verify manually that Pepper Checker has been uninstalled check the outputs of:
ls /usr/bin/pepper-checker*
ls /usr/share/pepper-checker
If ls finds nothing then Pepper Checker is not currently installed, otherwise it will list Pepper Checker's files. Apt-get can also tell you if it's installed. Type:
sudo apt-get install pepper-checker
Apt-get will either say either that the package can't be found (if it's not currently installed), or that you have the latest version (if it is installed).
