NAME

       dh_gencontrol - generate and install control file

SYNOPSIS

       dh_gencontrol [debhelper options] [-- params]

DESCRIPTION

       dh_gencontrol is a debhelper program that is responsible for generating control files, and
       installing them into the DEBIAN directory with the proper permissions.

       This program is merely a wrapper around dpkg-gencontrol(1), which calls it once for each
       package being acted on, and passes in some additional useful flags.

OPTIONS

       -- params
           Pass params to dpkg-gencontrol(1).

       -uparams, --dpkg-gencontrol-params=params
           This is another way to pass params to dpkg-gencontrol(1).  It is deprecated; use --
           instead.

SEE ALSO

       debhelper(7)

       This program is a part of debhelper.
