Normally, the script presents the information in a human readable
tabular format, but that may be harder for a machine to parse.
With this option, the output is a compact, colon separated line,
with no dividers, headers, or footer.
Set the state directory to “/path/to/dir” instead of the default
“/var/lib/ucf”. Used mostly for testing.
This script takes a set of arguments, each of which is a package name
(and thus does not contain a /) or a full path to a configuration file,
and outputs the associated package, if any, if the file exists on disk,
and whether it has been modified by the user. The output is either a
human readable tabular form, or a compact colon-separated machine
This script can potentially be used in package “postrm” scripts during
purge to query the system for configuration files that may still exist
on the system, and whether these files have been locally modified by
the user — assuming that the package registered all the configuration
files with ucf using “ucfr”.
This is very inchoate, at the moment, and needs testing.
None Known so far.
