       This manual page documents briefly the dh-make-pear command.

       dh-make-pear creates the files required to build a debian source package from a PHP
       extension as it is distributed through PEAR.

       The last parameter passed to dh-make-pear can be either the .tgz archive containing the
       php extension or the name of the extension. In the second case dh-make-pear will first
       download the archive from If dh-make-pear downloads the archive
       itself, it will always take the most recent version.

       dh-make-pear will by default create a directory named php-<pear-package-name> which will
       contain the debian files and the unpacked files from the extension. It will also create a
       symlink php-<pear-package-name>_<version>.orig.tar.gz pointing towards the original
       source. After creating the files you can go into then new directory and build the debian
       package with dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot.

       dh-make-pear tries to extract as much information about the package from the file
       package.xml which is part of the pear extension.

       Debian source packages created by dh-make-pear can later easily be updated with uscan.


       These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with
       two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below. For a complete description, see
       the Info files.

       -h --help
           Show summary of options.

       -v --version
           Show version of program.

           Do not link orig.tar.gz but move the source into .orig.tar.gz.

           Set architecture of created debian source package to 'any' or 'all'. Defaults to

           Set preferred state for downloaded package. Defaults to 'stable'.

           Adds more packages to Depends: beside php-pear.

           Sets prefix of debian source package name. Each name ends in '<pear-package-name>'.
           Defaults to 'php-'.

           Explicitly sets the maintainer. In most cases it will be propperly guessed by reading
           some of the environment variables.

           Use a different directory with templates for the debian files. Defaults to


       DEBFULLNAME - get the real name of the maintainer

       LOGNAME or USER - get the username

       DEBEMAIL or EMAIL - get the email address of the user


       dh-make-pecl (1).
