NAME

       dh_perl - calculates perl dependencies and cleans up after MakeMaker

SYNOPSIS

       dh_perl [debhelperoptions] [-d] [librarydirs...]

DESCRIPTION

       dh_perl is a debhelper program that is responsible for generating the
       ${perl:Depends} substitutions and adding them to substvars files.

       The program will look at perl scripts and modules in your package, and
       will use this information to generate a dependency on perl or perlapi.
       The dependency will be substituted into your package’s control file
       wherever you place the token "${perl:Depends}".

       dh_perl also cleans up empty directories that MakeMaker can generate
       when installing perl modules.

OPTIONS

       -d  In some specific cases you may want to depend on perl-base rather
           than the full perl package. If so, you can pass the -d option to
           make dh_perl generate a dependency on the correct base package.
           This is only necessary for some packages that are included in the
           base system.

           Note that this flag may cause no dependency on perl-base to be
           generated at all. perl-base is Essential, so its dependency can be
           left out, unless a versioned dependency is needed.

       -V  By default, scripts and architecture independent modules don’t
           depend on any specific version of perl.  The -V option causes the
           current version of the perl (or perl-base with -d) package to be
           specified.

       library dirs
           If your package installs perl modules in non-standard directories,
           you can make dh_perl check those directories by passing their names
           on the command line. It will only check the vendorlib and
           vendorarch directories by default.
