DH_INSTALLDEB(1)                   Debhelper                  DH_INSTALLDEB(1)



NAME
       dh_installdeb - install files into the DEBIAN directory

SYNOPSIS
       dh_installdeb [debhelper options]

DESCRIPTION
       dh_installdeb is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing
       files into the DEBIAN directories in package build directories with the
       correct permissions.

       dh_installdeb automatically installs the following files from debian/
       into the DEBIAN directory:
         package.postinst
         package.preinst
         package.postrm
         package.prerm
         package.shlibs
         package.conffiles
         package.triggers

       The postinst, preinst, postrm, and prerm are handled specially: If a
       corresponding file named debian/package.script.debhelper exists, the
       contents of that file are merged into the script as follows: If the
       script exists, then anywhere in it that "#DEBHELPER#" appears, the text
       of the .debhelper file is inserted. If the script does not exist, then
       a script is generated from the .debhelper file. The .debhelper files
       are created by other debhelper programs, such as dh_installmenu(1), and
       are shell script fragments.

       In V3 compatibility mode and higher, all files in the etc/ directory in
       a package will automatically be flagged as conffiles by this program,
       so there is no need to list them manually in package.conffiles.

       This program is a part of debhelper.
