dh_installexamples - install example files into package build directories
is a debhelper program that is responsible for
installing examples into usr/share/doc/package/examples
- Lists example files or directories to be installed.
- -A, --all
- Install any files specified by command line parameters in ALL packages
- -Xitem, --exclude=item
- Exclude files that contain item anywhere in their filename from
- file ...
- Install these files (or directories) as examples into the first package
acted on. (Or into all packages if -A is specified.)
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.
This program is a part of debhelper.
