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 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.
