NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_installdeb - install files into the DEBIAN directory

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_installdeb [debhelper options]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_installdeb is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing
       files into the DEBIAN directories in package build directories with the
       correct permissions.

       dh_installdeb automatically installs the following files from debian/
       into the DEBIAN directory:

       The postinst, preinst, postrm, and prerm are handled specially: If a
       corresponding file named debian/script.debhelper exists, the contents
       of that file are merged into the script as follows: If the script
       exists, then anywhere in it that "#DEBHELPER#" appears, the text of the
       .debhelper file is inserted. If the script does not exist, then a
       script is generated from the .debhelper file. The .debhelper files are
       created by other debhelper programs, such as dh_installmenu(1), and are
       shell script fragments.

       In V3 compatability mode and higher, all files in the etc/ directory in
       a package will automatically be flagged as conffiles by this program,
       so there is no need to list them manually in package.conffiles.
