NAME

       dh_prep - perform cleanups in preparation for building a binary package

SYNOPSIS

       dh_prep [debhelperoptions] [-Xitem]

DESCRIPTION

       dh_prep is a debhelper program that performs some file cleanups in
       preparation for building a binary 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 when building a binary package.

       It is typically run at the top of the binary-arch and binary-indep
       targets, or at the top of a target such as install that they depend on.

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.
