       dh_clean - clean up package build directories


       dh_clean [debhelper options] [-k] [-d] [-Xitem] [file ...]


       dh_clean is a debhelper program that is responsible for cleaning up
       after a package is built. It removes the package build directories, and
       removes some other files including debian/files, and any detritus left
       behind by other debhelper commands. It also removes common files that
       should not appear in a debian diff:
         #*# *~ DEADJOE *.orig *.rej *.SUMS TAGS .deps/* *.P *-stamp

       The debian/clean file can list other files to be removed.

       It does not run "make clean" to clean up after the build process. Use
       dh_auto_clean(1) to do that.

       dh_clean (or "dh clean") should be the last debhelper command run in
       the clean target in debian/rules.


       -k, --keep
           This is deprecated, use dh_prep(1) instead.

       -d, --dirs-only
           Only clean the package build directories, do not clean up any other
           files at all.

       -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.

       file ...
           Delete these files too.



       This program is a part of debhelper.
