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

       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 dis‐
       assembles 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 <>.
