NAME

       dh_movefiles - move files out of debian/tmp into subpackages

SYNOPSIS

       dh_movefiles [debhelper options] [--sourcedir=dir] [-Xitem] file ...]

DESCRIPTION

       dh_movefiles is a debhelper program that is responsible for moving
       files out of debian/tmp or some other directory and into other package
       build directories. This may be useful if your package has a Makefile
       that installs everything into debian/tmp, and you need to break that up
       into subpackages.

       Files named debian/package.files list the files to be moved, separated
       by whitespace. The filenames listed should be relative to debian/tmp/.
       You can also list directory names, and the whole directory will be
       moved. If you prefer, you can list the files to move on the command
       line and this will apply to the first package dh_movefiles is told to
       act on.

       Note: dh_install is a much better program, and you are recommended to
       use it instead of dh_movefiles.

OPTIONS

       --sourcedir=dir
           Instead of moving files out of debian/tmp (the default), this
           option makes it move files out of some other directory. Since the
           entire contents of the sourcedir is moved, specifying something
           like --sourcedir=/ is very unsafe, so to prevent mistakes, the
           sourcedir must be a relative filename; it cannot begin with a ‘/’.

       -Xitem, --exclude=item
           Exclude files that contain "item" anywhere in their filename from
           being installed.

       file ...
           Lists files to move. The filenames listed should be relative to
           debian/tmp/. You can also list directory names, and the whole
           directory will be moved. It is an error to list files here unless
           you use -p, -i, or -a to tell dh_movefiles which subpackage to put
           them in.

NOTES

       Note that files are always moved out of debian/tmp by default (even if
       you have instructed debhelper to use a compatibility level higher than
       one, which does not otherwise use debian/tmp for anything at all). The
       idea behind this is that the package that is being built can be told to
       install into debian/tmp, and then files can be moved by dh_movefiles
       from that directory. Any files or directories that remain are ignored,
       and get deleted by dh_clean later.
