       dh_installemacsen - register an emacs add on package


       dh_installemacsen [debhelper options] [-n] [--priority=n]


       dh_installemacsen is a debhelper program that is responsible for
       installing files used by the debian emacsen-common package into package
       build directories.

       It also automatically generates the postinst and prerm commands needed
       to register a package as an emacs add on package. The commands are
       added to the maintainer scripts by dh_installdeb. See dh_installdeb(1)
       for an explanation of how this works.

       If a file named debian/package.emacsen-install exists, then it is
       installed into usr/lib/emacsen-common/packages/install/package in the
       package build directory. Similarly, debian/package.emacsen-remove is
       installed into usr/lib/emacsen-common/packages/remove/package . And
       similarly, debian/package.emacsen-startup is installed into
       etc/emacs/site-start.d/50<package>.el (by default).


       -n, --noscripts
           Do not modify postinst/prerm scripts.

           Sets the priority number of a site-start.d file. Default is 50.

           Sets the flavor a site-start.d file will be installed in. Default
           is "emacs", alternatives include "xemacs" and "emacs20".


       Note that this command is not idempotent. "dh_clean -k" should be
       called between invocations of this command. Otherwise, it may cause
       multiple instances of the same text to be added to maintainer scripts.



       This program is a part of debhelper.
