dh_installdeb - install files into the DEBIAN directory
dh_installdeb [debhelper options]
dh_installdeb is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing
files into the DEBIAN directories in package build directories with the
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.
This program is a part of debhelper.
