I assume you want to do this on a small repository.

The packages files live in /var/lib/apt/lists, so for example, you would 
run as follows. The first command schedules the packages to be 
installed, and the second command actually installs them.

# awk '/^Package:/{print 
$2}' /var/lib/apt/lists/ftp.nerim.net_debian-marillat_dists_sid_main_binary-i386_Packages | 
xargs aptitude --schedule-only install 
# aptitude install
