NAME

       dh_md5sums - generate DEBIAN/md5sums file

SYNOPSIS

       dh_md5sums [debhelperĀ options] [-x] [-Xitem] [--include-conffiles]

DESCRIPTION

       dh_md5sums is a debhelper program that is responsible for generating a DEBIAN/md5sums
       file, which lists the md5sums of each file in the package.  These files are used by dpkg
       --verify or the debsums(1) program.

       All files in DEBIAN/ are omitted from the md5sums file, as are all conffiles (unless you
       use the --include-conffiles switch).

       The md5sums file is installed with proper permissions and ownerships.

OPTIONS

       -x, --include-conffiles
           Include conffiles in the md5sums list. Note that this information is redundant since
           it is included elsewhere in Debian packages.

       -Xitem, --exclude=item
           Exclude files that contain item anywhere in their filename from being listed in the
           md5sums file.
