apt-extracttemplates

       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
