debconf−loadtemplate − load template file into debconf

 debconf−loadtemplate owner file [file ..]

Loads one or more template files into the debconf database.
The first parameter specifies the owner of the templates
(typically, the owner is the name of a debian package). The
remaining parameters are template files to load.

This program should never be used from a maintainer script
of a package that uses debconf! It may however, be useful in
debugging, or to seed the debconf database.
