APTITUDE-CREATE()                                            APTITUDE-CREATE()



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 ".".
