NAMEdh_installexamples - install example files into package build directories
SYNOPSISdh_installexamples [debhelper options] [-A] [-Xitem] [file ...]
DESCRIPTIONdh_installexamples is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing examples into usr/share/doc/package/examples in package build directories.
- Lists example files or directories to be installed.
- -A, --all
Install any files specified by command line parameters in ALLpackages acted on.
Look in the specified directory for files to be installed. This option
requires compat 11 or later (it is silently ignored in compat 10 or earlier).
Note that this is not the same as the --sourcedirectory option used by the dh_auto_* commands. You rarely need to use this option, since dh_installexamples automatically looks for files in debian/tmp in debhelper compatibility level 11 and above.
- -Xitem, --exclude=item
- Exclude files that contain item anywhere in their filename from being installed.
- file ...
- Install these files (or directories) as examples into the first package acted on. (Or into all packages if -A is specified.)
NOTESNote that dh_installexamples will happily copy entire directory hierarchies if you ask it to (similar to cp -a). If it is asked to install a directory, it will install the complete contents of the directory.
This program is a part of debhelper.
