NAME

       dh-exec - Debhelper executable file helpers

SYNOPSIS

       #! /usr/bin/dh-exec
       src/libfoo-*.so.* debian/foo-plugins/usr/lib/foo/${DEB_HOST_MULTIARCH}/
       etc/example.conf => debian/foo/etc/foo/foo.conf

DESCRIPTION

       dh-exec is a simple program, meant to be used as the interpreter for executable debhelper
       config files.

       It is a wrapper around the various other helpers (see below), and will pipe the input file
       through all of them in turn, using an ordering that makes most sense in the vast majority
       of cases.

       The order as of now is dh-exec-subst gets run first, followed by dh-exec-install, so that
       variable expansion happens before files need to be copied.

OPTIONS

       --with=helper[,helper ...]
           Replace the list of helpers to run the input through with a custom list (where entries
           are separated by whitespace or commas). This option will always replace the existing
           list with whatever is specified.

           This can be used to explicitly set which helpers to use.

           The list must not include the dh-exec- prefix.

           Defaults to subst,install.

       --without=helper[,helper ...]
           Inversely to the option above, this lists all the helpers which should not be used.

           The list must not include the dh-exec- prefix.

       --no-act
           Do not really do anything, but print the pipeline that would have been run instead.

       --help, --version
           Display a short help or the package version, respectively.

HELPERS

       dh-exec-subst
              Substitutes various variables (either from the environment, or from
              dpkg-architecture(1)).

       dh-exec-install
              An extension to dh_install(1), that supports renaming files during the copy
              process, using a special syntax.

ENVIRONMENT

       DH_EXEC_LIBDIR
           The directory in which the wrapped helpers reside. Defaults to /usr/lib/dh-exec/.

FILES

       $DH_EXEC_LIBDIR/dh-exec-*
           The various helpers.
