APTITUDE-RUN-STATE(1)       Command-line reference       APTITUDE-RUN-STATE(1)

NAME
       aptitude-run-state-bundle - unpack an aptitude state bundle and invoke
       aptitude on it

SYNOPSIS
       aptitude-run-state-bundle [<options>...] <input-file>
                                 [<program> [<arguments>...]]

DESCRIPTION
           Note
           This command is mostly for internal use and bug reporting in
           exceptional cases, it is not intended for end-users under normal
           circumstances.

       aptitude-run-state-bundle unpacks the given aptitude state bundle
       created by aptitude-create-state-bundle(1) to a temporary directory,
       invokes <program> on it with the supplied <arguments>, and removes the
       temporary directory afterwards. If <program> is not supplied, it
       defaults to aptitude(8).

OPTIONS
       The following options may occur on the command-line before the input
       file. Options following the input file are presumed to be arguments to
       aptitude.

       --append-args
           Place the options that give the location of the state bundle at the
           end of the command line when invoking <program>, rather than at the
           beginning (the default is to place options at the beginning).

       --help
           Display a brief usage summary.

       --prepend-args
           Place the options that give the location of the state bundle at the
           beginning of the command line when invoking <program>, overriding
           any previous --append-args (the default is to place options at the
           beginning).

       --no-clean
           Do not remove the unpacked state directory after running aptitude.
           You might want to use this if, for instance, you are debugging a
           problem that appears when aptitude's state file is modified. When
           aptitude finishes running, the name of the state directory will be
           printed so that you can access it in the future.

           This option is enabled automatically by --statedir.

       --really-clean
           Delete the state directory after running aptitude, even if
           --no-clean or --statedir was supplied.

       --statedir
           Instead of treating the input file as a state bundle, treat it as
           an unpacked state bundle. For instance, you can use this to access
           the state directory that was created by a prior run with
           --no-clean.

       --unpack
           Unpack the input file to a temporary directory, but don't actually
           run aptitude.
