NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_perl - calculates perl scripts & modules dependencies

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_perl [debhelper options] [-d] [library dirs ...]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_perl is a debhelper program that is responsible for generating the
       ${perl:Depends} substitutions and adding them to substvars files.

       The program will look at perl scripts and modules in your package, and
       will use this information to generate a dependency.  The dependency
       will be substituted into your package's control file wherever you place
       the token "${perl:Depends}".

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       -d  In some specific cases you may want to depend on perl-base rather
	   than the full perl package. If so, you can pass the -d option to
	   make dh_perl generate a dependency on the correct base package.
	   This is only necessary for some packages that are included in the
	   base system.

       -V  By default, scripts and architecture independent modules don't
	   depend on any specific version of perl.  The -V option causes the
	   current version of the perl (or perl-base with -d) package to be

       library dirs
	   If your package installs perl modules in non-standard directories,
	   you can make dh_perl check those directories by passing their names
	   on the command line. It will only check the vendorlib and vendorarch
 directories by default.
