The issue file may contain certain escape codes to display the system name, date, time etc. All escape codes consist of a backslash (\) immediately followed by one of the characters listed below.

4 or 4{interface}
Insert the IPv4 address of the specified network interface (for example: \4{eth0}). If the interface argument is not specified, then select the first fully configured (UP, non-LOCALBACK, RUNNING) interface. If not any configured interface is found, fall back to the IP address of the machine's hostname.

6 or 6{interface}
The same as \4 but for IPv6.

b Insert the baudrate of the current line.

d Insert the current date.

e or e{name}
Translate the human-readable name to an escape sequence and insert it (for example: \e{red}Alert text.\e{reset}). If the name argument is not specified, then insert \033. The currently supported names are: black, blink, blue, bold, brown, cyan, darkgray, gray, green, halfbright, lightblue, lightcyan, lightgray, lightgreen, lightmagenta, lightred, magenta, red, reset, reverse, and yellow. All unknown names are silently ignored.

s Insert the system name (the name of the operating system). Same as 'uname -s'. See also the \S escape code.

Insert the VARIABLE data from /etc/os-release. If this file does not exist then fall back to /usr/lib/os-release. If the VARIABLE argument is not specified, then use PRETTY_NAME from the file or the system name (see \s). This escape code allows to keep /etc/issue distribution and release independent. Note that \S{ANSI_COLOR} is converted to the real terminal escape sequence.

l Insert the name of the current tty line.

m Insert the architecture identifier of the machine. Same as 'uname -m'.

n Insert the nodename of the machine, also known as the hostname. Same as 'uname -n'.

o Insert the NIS domainname of the machine. Same as 'hostname -d'.

O Insert the DNS domainname of the machine.

r Insert the release number of the OS. Same as 'uname -r'.

t Insert the current time.

u Insert the number of current users logged in.

U Insert the string "1 user" or " users" where is the number of current users logged in.

v Insert the version of the OS, that is, the build-date and such.
