APTITUDE-RUN-ST(1)		      Command-line reference		       APTITUDE-RUN-ST(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
       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.
