       dh_installcatalogs - install and register SGML Catalogs


       dh_installcatalogs [debhelper options] [-n]


       dh_installcatalogs is a debhelper program that installs and registers
       SGML catalogs. It complies with the Debian XML/SGML policy.

       The file debian/package.sgmlcatalogs contains the catalogs to be
       installed per package.  Each line in that file should be of the form
       "source dest", where "source" indicates where the catalog resides in
       the source tree, and "dest" indicates the destination location for the
       catalog under the package build area.  "dest" should start with

       Catalogs will be registered in a supercatalog, in

       This command automatically adds maintainer script snippets for
       registering and unregistering the catalogs and "supercatalogs" (unless
       -n is used). These snippets are inserted into the maintainer scripts by
       dh_installdeb; see dh_installdeb(1) for an explanation of Debhelper
       maintainer script snippets.

       A dependency on sgml-base will be added to "${misc:Depends}", so be
       sure your package uses that variable in debian/control.

           Do not modify postinst/postrm/prerm scripts.


       Note that this command is not idempotent. dh_prep(1) should be called
       between invocations of this command. Otherwise, it may cause multiple
       instances of the same text to be added to maintainer scripts.
