NAME
       aptitude-create-state-bundle - bundle the current aptitude state

SYNOPSIS
       aptitude-create-state-bundle [<options>...] <output-file>

DESCRIPTION
       aptitude-create-state-bundle produces a compressed archive storing the files that are
       required to replicate the current package archive state. The following files and
       directories are included in the bundle:

       o   $HOME/.aptitude

       o   /var/lib/aptitude

       o   /var/lib/apt

       o   /var/cache/apt/*.bin

       o   /etc/apt

       o   /var/lib/dpkg/status

       The output of this program can be used as an argument to aptitude-run-state-bundle(1).

OPTIONS
       --force-bzip2
	   Override the autodetection of which compression algorithm to use. By default,
	   aptitude-create-state-bundle uses bzip2(1) if it is available, and gzip(1) otherwise.
	   Passing this option forces the use of bzip2 even if it doesn't appear to be available.

       --force-gzip
	   Override the autodetection of which compression algorithm to use. By default,
	   aptitude-create-state-bundle uses bzip2(1) if it is available, and gzip(1) otherwise.
	   Passing this option forces the use of gzip even if bzip2 is available.

       --help
	   Print a brief usage message, then exit.

       --print-inputs
	   Instead of creating a bundle, display a list of the files and directories that the
	   program would include if it generated a bundle.

FILE FORMAT
       The bundle file is simply a tar(1) file compressed with bzip2(1) or gzip(1), with each of
       the input directory trees rooted at ".".
