NAME

       dh_installdeb - install files into the DEBIAN directory

SYNOPSIS

       dh_installdeb [debhelperĀ options]

DESCRIPTION

       dh_installdeb is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing files into the
       DEBIAN directories in package build directories with the correct permissions.

FILES

       package.postinst
       package.preinst
       package.postrm
       package.prerm
           These maintainer scripts are installed into the DEBIAN directory.

           Inside the scripts, the token #DEBHELPER# is replaced with shell script snippets
           generated by other debhelper commands.

       package.triggers
       package.shlibs
           These control files are installed into the DEBIAN directory.

           Note that package.shlibs is only installed in compat level 9 and earlier.  In compat
           10, please use dh_makeshlibs(1).

       package.conffiles
           This control file will be installed into the DEBIAN directory.

           In v3 compatibility mode and higher, all files in the etc/ directory in a package will
           automatically be flagged as conffiles by this program, so there is no need to list
           them manually here.

       package.maintscript
           Lines in this file correspond to dpkg-maintscript-helper(1) commands and parameters.
           However, the "maint-script-parameters" should not be included as debhelper will add
           those automatically.

           Example:

               # Correct
               rm_conffile /etc/obsolete.conf 0.2~ foo
               # INCORRECT
               rm_conffile /etc/obsolete.conf 0.2~ foo -- "$@"

           In compat 10 or later, any shell metacharacters will be escaped, so arbitrary shell
           code cannot be inserted here.  For example, a line such as "mv_conffile
           /etc/oldconffile /etc/newconffile" will insert maintainer script snippets into all
           maintainer scripts sufficient to move that conffile.

           It was also the intention to escape shell metacharacters in previous compat levels.
           However, it did not work properly and as such it was possible to embed arbitrary shell
           code in earlier compat levels.

           The dh_installdeb tool will do some basic validation of some of the commands listed in
           this file to catch common mistakes.  The validation is enabled as a warning since
           compat 10 and as a hard error in compat 12.
