NAME

       dh_gencontrol - generate and install control file

SYNOPSIS

       dh_gencontrol [debhelper options] [-- params]

DESCRIPTION

       dh_gencontrol is a debhelper program that is responsible for generating control files, and
       installing them into the DEBIAN directory with the proper permissions.

       This program is merely a wrapper around dpkg-gencontrol(1), which calls it once for each
       package being acted on (plus related dbgsym packages), and passes in some additional
       useful flags.

       Note that if you use dh_gencontrol, you must also use dh_builddeb(1) to build the
       packages.  Otherwise, your build may fail to build as dh_gencontrol (via
       dpkg-gencontrol(1)) declares which packages are built.  As debhelper automatically
       generates dbgsym packages, it some times adds additional packages, which will be built by
       dh_builddeb(1).

OPTIONS

       -- params
           Pass params to dpkg-gencontrol(1).

       -uparams, --dpkg-gencontrol-params=params
           This is another way to pass params to dpkg-gencontrol(1).  It is deprecated; use --
           instead.
