NAME

       dh_prep - perform cleanups in preparation for building a binary package

SYNOPSIS

       dh_prep [debhelperĀ options] [-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

       This program is a part of debhelper.
