dh_installinfo - install and register info files
dh_installinfo [debhelper options] [-A] [-n] [file ...]
dh_installinfo is a debhelper program that is responsible for
installing info files and registering the files it installs with
Note that install-info determines some information about the info files
by parsing them, in particular, it looks at the INFO-DIR-SECTION line
to determine what section the info file belongs in.
Any filenames specified as parameters will be installed into the first
package dh_installinfo 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.info can list other files to be installed.
dh_installinfo will automatically generate the postinst and prerm
commands needed to interface with install-info, updating the info dir.
These commands are inserted into the maintainer scripts by
dh_installdeb. See dh_installdeb(1) for an explanation of how this
Install all files specified by command line parameters in ALL
packages acted on.
Do not modify postinst/prerm scripts.
Install these info files into the first package acted on. (Or in
all packages if -A is specified).
Note that this command is not idempotent. dh_prep(1) should be called
between invocations of this command. Otherwise, it may cause multiple
instances of the same text to be added to maintainer scripts.
This program is a part of debhelper.
