DH_INSTALLEXAMPLES(1)              Debhelper             DH_INSTALLEXAMPLES(1)



NAME
       dh_installexamples - install example files into package build
       directories

SYNOPSIS
       dh_installexamples [debhelper options] [-A] [-Xitem] [file ...]

DESCRIPTION
       dh_installexamples is a debhelper program that is responsible for
       installing examples into usr/share/doc/package/examples in package
       build directories.

       Any file names specified as parameters will be installed into the first
       package dh_installexamples 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.

       Files named debian/package.examples can list other files to be
       installed.

OPTIONS
       -A, --all
           Install any files specified by command line parameters in ALL
           packages acted on.

       file ...
           Install these files as examples into the first package acted on.
           (Or into all packages if -A is specified.)

       -Xitem, --exclude=item
           Exclude files that contain "item" anywhere in their filename from
           being installed.

NOTES
       Note 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.
