dh_installinfo - install and register info files
dh_installinfo [debhelper options] [-A] [-n] [file ...]
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.
Install all files specified by command line parameters in ALL packages
Do not modify postinst/prerm scripts.
Install these info files into the first package acted on. (Or in
all packages if -A is specified).
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.
This program is a part of debhelper.
