NAME

       dh_installdebconf - install files used by debconf in package build
       directories

SYNOPSIS

       dh_installdebconf [debhelperoptions] [-n] [--params]

DESCRIPTION

       dh_installdebconf is a debhelper program that is responsible for
       installing files used by debconf into package build directories.

       It also automatically generates the postrm commands needed to interface
       with debconf. The commands are added to the maintainer scripts by
       dh_installdeb. See dh_installdeb(1) for an explanation of how that
       works.

       Note that if you use debconf, your package probably needs to depend on
       it (it will be added to ${misc:Depends} by this program).

       Note that for your config script to be called by dpkg, your postinst
       needs to source debconf's confmodule. dh_installdebconf does not
       install this statement into the postinst automatically as it is too
       hard to do it right.

FILES

       debian/package.config
           This is the debconf config script, and is installed into the DEBIAN
           directory in the package build directory.

           Inside the script, the token #DEBHELPER# is replaced with shell
           script snippets generated by other debhelper commands.

       debian/package.templates
           This is the debconf templates file, and is installed into the
           DEBIAN directory in the package build directory.

       debian/po/
           If this directory is present, this program will automatically use
           po2debconf(1) to generate merged templates files that include the
           translations from there.

           For this to work, your package should build-depend on po-debconf.

OPTIONS

       -n, --noscripts
           Do not modify postrm script.

       -- params
           Pass the params to po2debconf.
