NAME

       dh_prep - preform cleanups in preparation for building a binary package

SYNOPSIS

       dh_prep [debhelper options] [-Xitem]

DESCRIPTION

       dh_prep is a debhelper program that performs some file cleanups in
       preparation for building a package. (This is what dh_clean -k used to
       do.)  It removes the package build directories, debian/tmp, and some
       temp files that are generated during the build. Putting this at the
       start of the build process makes the build process idempotent.

OPTIONS

       -Xitem --exclude=item
           Exclude files that contain "item" anywhere in their filename from
           being deleted, even if they would normally be deleted. 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.
