NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_installinfo - install and register info files

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_installinfo [debhelper options] [-A] [-n] [file ...]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_installinfo is a debhelper program that is responsible for
       installing info files and registering the files it installs with

       It determines some information about the info files by parsing them, in
       particular, it looks at the INFO-DIR-SECTION line to determine what
       section the info file belongs in.

       Any filenames specified as parameters will be installed into the first
       package dh_installinfo is told to act on. By default, this is the first
       binary package in debian/control, but if you use -p, -i, or -a flags,
       it will be the first package specified by those flags.

       Files named debian/package.info can list other files to be installed.

       dh_installinfo will automatically generate the postinst and prerm commands
 needed to interface with install-info, updating the info . See
       dh_installdeb(1) for an explanation of how this works.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       -A, --all
	   Install all files specified by command line parameters in ALL packages
 acted on.

       -n, --noscripts
	   Do not modify postinst/prerm scripts.

       file ...
	   Install these info files into the first package acted on. (Or in
	   all packages if -A is specified).

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

       Note that this command is not idempotent. "dh_clean -k" should be
       called between invocations of this command. Otherwise, it may cause
       multiple instances of the same text to be added to maintainer scripts.
