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

SYNOPSIS
       apt-extracttemplates [-hv] [-t=temporary directory] file...

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.XXXX and package.config.XXXX

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

	   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.
