NAME

       apt-extracttemplates - Utility to extract debconf config and templates from Debian
       packages

SYNOPSIS

       apt-extracttemplates [-t=temporary_directory] filename... {-v | --version} {-h | --help}

DESCRIPTION

       apt-extracttemplates will take one or more Debian package files as input and write out (to
       a temporary directory) all associated config scripts and template files. For each passed
       in package that contains config scripts and templates, one line of output will be
       generated in the format:

       package version template-file config-script

       template-file and config-script are written to the temporary directory specified by the -t
       or --tempdir (APT::ExtractTemplates::TempDir) directory, with filenames of the form
       package.template.XXXXXX and package.config.XXXXXX

OPTIONS

       All command line options may be set using the configuration file, the descriptions
       indicate the configuration option to set. For boolean options you can override the config
       file by using something like -f-,--no-f, -f=no or several other variations.

       -t, --tempdir
           Temporary directory in which to write extracted debconf template files and config
           scripts. Configuration Item: APT::ExtractTemplates::TempDir

       -h, --help
           Show a short usage summary.

       -v, --version
           Show the program version.

       -c, --config-file
           Configuration File; Specify a configuration file to use. The program will read the
           default configuration file and then this configuration file. If configuration settings
           need to be set before the default configuration files are parsed specify a file with
           the APT_CONFIG environment variable. See apt.conf(5) for syntax information.

       -o, --option
           Set a Configuration Option; This will set an arbitrary configuration option. The
           syntax is -o Foo::Bar=bar.  -o and --option can be used multiple times to set
           different options.
