NAME

dpkg-distaddfile - add entries to debian/files

SYNOPSIS

dpkg-distaddfile [option...] filename section priority

DESCRIPTION

dpkg-distaddfile adds an entry for a named file to debian/files.

It takes three non-option arguments, the filename and the section and priority for the .changes file.

The filename should be specified relative to the directory where dpkg-genchanges will expect to find the files, usually .., rather than being a pathname relative to the current directory when dpkg-distaddfile is run.

OPTIONS

-?, --help
Show the usage message and exit.

If set, it will be used to decide whether to activate Native Language Support, also known as internationalization (or i18n) support (since dpkg 1.19.0). The accepted values are: 0 and 1 (default).

FILES

The list of generated files which are part of the upload being prepared. dpkg-distaddfile can be used to add additional files.
