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.


AUTHOR
       apport  and  the  accompanying tools are developed by Martin Pitt <mar-
       tin.pitt@ubuntu.com>.
