    Command:

    apt-config

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           apt-config [-hv] [-o=config string] [-c=file] {[shell] | [dump]}
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           apt-config is an internal program used by various portions of the APT
           suite to provide consistent configurability. It accesses the main
           configuration file /etc/apt/apt.conf in a manner that is easy to use by
           scripted applications.
    
           Unless the -h, or --help option is given one of the commands below must
           be present.
    
           shell
               shell is used to access the configuration information from a shell
               script. It is given pairs of arguments, the first being a shell
               variable and the second the configuration value to query. As output
               it lists a series of shell assignments commands for each present
               value. In a shell script it should be used like:
    
                   OPTS="-f"
                   RES='apt-config shell OPTS MyApp::options'
                   eval $RES
               This will set the shell environment variable $OPTS to the value of
               MyApp::options with a default of -f.
    
               The configuration item may be postfixed with a /[fdbi]. f returns
               file names, d returns directories, b returns true or false and i
               returns an integer. Each of the returns is normalized and verified
               internally.
    
           dump
               Just show the contents of the configuration space.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           All command line options may be set using the configuration file, the
           descriptions indicate the configuration option to set. For boolean
           options you can override the config file by using something like
           -f-,--no-f, -f=no or several other variations.
    
           -h, --help
               Show a short usage summary.
    
           -v, --version
               Show the program version.
    
           -c, --config-file
               Configuration File; Specify a configuration file to use. The
               program will read the default configuration file and then this
               configuration file. If configuration settings need to be set before
               the default configuration files are parsed specify a file with the
               APT_CONFIG environment variable. See apt.conf(5) for syntax
               information.
    
           /usr/share/doc/debian/bug-reporting.txt or the reportbug(1) command.
