NAME

       dh_phppear - calculates PHP PEAR substvars

SYNOPSIS

       dh_phppear [debhelper options] [options]

DESCRIPTION

       dh_phppear is a debhelper program that is responsible for generating the ${phppear:*}
       substitutions and adding them to substvars files.

       The program will look at package.xml (or package2.xml) in the package, and will use this
       information to generate:

       · ${phppear:summary}, ${phppear:description} and ${phppear:channel}

       · ${phppear:Debian-Depends}, ${phppear:Debian-Recommends}, ${phppear:Debian-Suggests} and
         ${phppear:Debian-Breaks}

       Deprecated: the <pear-channels> package should be used (and updated) instead of
       introducing a new standalone channel package.

       The program will look at channel.xml in the package, and will use this information to
       generate:

       · ${phppear:channel-name}, ${phppear:channel-summary} and ${phppear:channel-alias}

       · ${phppear:channel-common-description}

       Those variables will be substituted into the package's control file wherever the token
       ${phppear:*} are placed.

OPTIONS

       --sourcedirectory=directory
           Assume that the original package source tree is at the specified directory rather than
           the top level directory of the Debian source package tree.

           This feature requires pkg-php-tools (>= 1.14~).

FILES

       debian/pkg-php-tools-overrides
           Package that don't want to follow automatic PEAR package name to Debian package name
           conversion can override the conversion by creating this file.

           It can be installed in /usr/share/pkg-php-tools/overrides/src:package.

           This feature requires pkg-php-tools (>= 1~).

           The format is a set of lines, with each line having the following fields:

           channel_url
                 The channel URL as found in package.xml (example: pear.phpunit.de).

           pear_package_name
                 The PEAR package name (example: phpunit).

           debian_package_name
                 The resulting Debian package name (example: phpunit).

                 Use builtin if the package is compiled from the php source package.

                 Use none if the PEAR package can't be simply translated to Debian name.

ADVANCED USAGE

   Building a PECL package
       A PECL package is a PEAR package which is compiled. Extra steps are needed:

       · Adding php-dev, pkg-php-tools (>= 1.6~) and dh-php to Build-Depends.

       · Adding ${shlibs:Depends} and ${misc:Depends} to Depends.

       · Adding --with php to dh line in debian/rules.

   Patching
       dh_phppear will remove md5sums and sha1sums to ease patching. You can patch as usual.

   Removing some files from the upstream tarball
       If some files are removed from the upstream tarball, the package will be incomplete unless
       they are stripped from the package.xml file in the PEAR package subdir. This can be done
       after the dh_auto_configure step. Example:

         override_dh_auto_configure:
               dh_auto_configure -O--buildsystem=phppear
               # Remove references of JsMin
               sed -i '/JsMin\.php/d' */package.xml

       This feature requires pkg-php-tools (>= 1.1~).

   Building a channel package (DEPRECATED)
       Deprecated: the pear-channels package should be used (and updated) instead of introducing
       a new standalone channel package.

       Simply put the channel.xml file downloaded from the PEAR channel in the root of the
       package source and use a debian/rules similar to a PEAR package.

       This feature requires pkg-php-tools (>= 1.3~).
