NAME

       dh_installdirs - create subdirectories in package build directories

SYNOPSIS

       dh_installdirs [debhelper options] [-A] [--sourcedir=dir] [--create-in-sourcedir]
       [dir ...]

DESCRIPTION

       dh_installdirs is a debhelper program that is responsible for creating subdirectories in
       package build directories.

       Many packages can get away with omitting the call to dh_installdirs completely.  Notably,
       other dh_* commands are expected to create directories as needed.

FILES

       debian/package.dirs
           Lists directories to be created in package.

           Generally, there is no need to list directories created by the upstream build system
           or directories needed by other debhelper commands.

OPTIONS

       -A, --all
           Create any directories specified by command line parameters in ALL packages acted on,
           not just the first.

       --create-in-sourcedir, --no-create-in-sourcedir
           Whether to create the specified directories in the source directory (usually
           debian/tmp) in addition to in the package build directory (usually debian/package).

           The default is --no-create-in-sourcedir.

       --sourcedir=dir
           Consider dir the source directory for the packages acted on instead of the default
           (which is usually debian/tmp).

           Please note that this option is dependent on the --create-in-sourcedir option (when
           --no-create-in-sourcedir is in effect, this option does nothing in dh_installdirs).

       dir ...
           Create these directories in the package build directory of the first package acted on.
           (Or in all packages if -A is specified.)
