       aptitude on it

				 [<program> [<arguments>...]]

       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

	   This option is enabled automatically by --statedir.

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

	   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

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