hostnamectl, when executed with no argument, will dump a bunch of information to the terminal. One of that is the
Operating System line as shown in the sample output below:
$ hostnamectl Static hostname: xxxxxx Icon name: computer-laptop Chassis: laptop Machine ID: e8..43 Boot ID: 7b..2a Operating System: Ubuntu 21.10 Kernel: Linux 5.13.0-28-generic Architecture: x86-64 Hardware Vendor: XXXXXX Hardware Model: XXXXXX

Ubuntu 21.10" is underlined like a hyperlink and when you Ctrl+click, it will open a web browser with the following link address:
How is this accomplished? What are the terminal commands (escape sequences?) that I need to output from a text based program or script to create such a hyperlink on the terminal?
