apport-unpack – extract the fields of a problem report to separate


apport-unpack report target-directory


A problem report, as produced by apport is a single file with a set of
key/value pairs in the RFC822 syntax. This tool disassembles a report
such that the value of each entry is written into a separate file, with
the key as file name. This is particularly useful for large binary data
like the core dump.

report is either a path to an existing apport crash report, or ‘-‘ to
read from stdin.

The target-directory must either be nonexisting or empty.


apport and the accompanying tools are developed by Martin Pitt .
