NAME

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

SYNOPSIS

apport-unpack report target-directory

DESCRIPTION

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.
