NAME

       dh_strip_nondeterminism - strip uninteresting, nondeterministic information from files

SYNOPSIS

       dh_strip_nondeterminism [debhelperĀ options] [-Xitem]

DESCRIPTION

       dh_strip_nondeterminism is a debhelper program that is responsible for stripping
       uninteresting, nondeterministic information, such as timestamps, from compiled files so
       that the build is reproducible.

       This program examines your package build directories and works out what to strip on its
       own. It uses file(1) and filenames to figure out what files should have nondeterminism
       stripped from them.  In general it seems to make very good guesses, and will do the right
       thing in almost all cases.

OPTIONS

       -Xitem, --exclude=item
           Exclude files that contain item anywhere in their filename from being stripped. You
           may use this option multiple times to build up a list of things to exclude.

SEE ALSO

       debhelper(7)

       This program is a part of debhelper.
