DH_CLEAN(1) Debhelper DH_CLEAN(1)
dh_clean - clean up package build directories
dh_clean [debhelper options] [-k] [-d] [-Xitem] [file ...]
dh_clean is a debhelper program that is responsible for cleaning up
after a package is built. It removes the package build directories, and
removes some other files including debian/files, and any detritus left
behind by other debhelper commands. It also removes common files that
should not appear in a debian diff:
#*# *~ DEADJOE *.orig *.rej *.SUMS TAGS .deps/* *.P *-stamp
The debian/clean file can list other files to be removed.
It does not run "make clean" to clean up after the build process. Use
dh_auto_clean(1) to do that.
dh_clean (or "dh clean") should be the last debhelper command run in
the clean target in debian/rules.
This is deprecated, use dh_prep(1) instead.
Only clean the package build directories, do not clean up any other
files at all.
Exclude files that contain "item" anywhere in their filename from
being deleted, even if they would normally be deleted. You may use
this option multiple times to build up a list of things to exclude.
Delete these files too.
This program is a part of debhelper.
