DH_AUTO_CLEAN(1)                   Debhelper                  DH_AUTO_CLEAN(1)



NAME
       dh_auto_clean - automatically cleans up after a build

SYNOPSIS
       dh_auto_clean [debhelper options] [-- params]

DESCRIPTION
       dh_auto_clean is a debhelper program that tries to automatically clean
       up after a package build. If there's a Makefile and it contains a
       "distclean", "realclean", or "clean" target, then this is  done by
       running make (or MAKE, if the environment variable is set). If there is
       a setup.py or Build.PL, it is run to clean the package.

       This is intended to work for about 90% of packages. If it doesn't work,
       or tries to use the wrong clean target, you're encouraged to skip using
       dh_auto_clean at all, and just run make clean manually.

OPTIONS
       -- params
           Pass "params" to the program that is run. These can be used to
           suppliment or override the any standard parameters that
           dh_auto_clean passes.

SEE ALSO
       debhelper(7)

       This program is a part of debhelper.
