reporter-print — Prints problem information to standard output or FILE.


reporter-print [-v] [-d DIR] [-o FILE] [-a yes/no] [-r]


The tool reads problem directory DIR and prints its text representation to stdout or to a specified FILE.

Integration with ABRT events

reporter-print can be used as a reporter, to allow users to report problems by writing them to a file. Example:

EVENT=report  reporter-print -o "${Log_File:-/tmp/abrt.log}"


-d DIR
Path to problem directory.
Be more verbose. Can be given multiple times.
Output file
-a yes/no
If -o FILE is specified, controls whether FILE is appended to, or overwritten. (default: no)
Add a record to reported_to in DIR which specifies that this problem was reported. Some tools use this to differentiate between problems which were and weren’t yet reported.

Output format

Elements which have more than one line are printed in the form


Output may contain empty lines for better readability.
