NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_undocumented - make symlinks to undocumented.7.gz man page

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_undocumented [debhelper options] [-A] [manpage ...]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_undocumented is a debhelper program that is responsible for making
       symlinks to undocumented(7) for man pages that are not present in your

       The program takes a list of man pages that should be symlinked to
       undocumented(7). It examines the extension to see what section the man
       page belongs in. After figuring this out, it generates the necessary

       The lists of man pages that need symlinks can be specified in two ways.
       Any man page names specified as parameters will be set up in the first
       package dh_undocumented 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.

       Also, a file named debian/package.undocumented can list other man page
       names to set up.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       -A, --all
	   Install undocumented man page symlinks for any man pages specified
	   by command line parameters in ALL packages acted on. I doubt anyone
	   will find this useful, it's here for consitency with other debhelper

       manpage ...
	   Install undocumented man page symlinks for each of these man pages
	   into the first package acted on. (Or in all packages acted on if -A
	   is specified.)

       Note that Debian policy prohibits links to undocumented(7) unless the
       package has an open bug report stating that it has no man page. You
       should really just write a man page instead; this program is an easy
       way out.
