DEBCONF-SHOW(1)			    Debconf		       DEBCONF-SHOW(1)

NAME
       debconf-show - query the debconf database

SYNOPSIS
	debconf-show packagename [...] [--db=dbname]
	debconf-show --listowners [--db=dbname]
	debconf-show --listdbs

DESCRIPTION
       debconf-show lets you query the debconf database in different ways.

       The most common use is "debconf-show packagename", which displays all
       items in the debconf database owned by a given package, and their
       current values.	Questions that have been asked already are prefixed
       with an '*'.

       This can be useful as a debugging aid, and especially handy in bug
       reports involving a package's use of debconf.

OPTIONS
       --db=dbname
	   Specify the database to query. By default, debconf-show queries the
	   main database.

       --listowners
	   Lists all owners of questions in the database. Generally an owner
	   is equivalent to a debian package name.

       --listdbs
	   Lists all available databases.
