installdeb-aspell - debhelper-like utility for maintainers of aspell dictionary Debian packages
installdeb-aspell [debhelper options]
installdeb-aspell is a debhelper like program that is responsible for installing appropriate debhelper snippets in an aspell dictionary package, according to the Debian Spell Dictionaries and Tools Policy. For more details, see /usr/share/doc/dictionaries-common-dev/dsdt-policy.txt.gz The actions executed by installdeb-aspell are the following: · Maintainer Scripts installdeb-aspell installs the necessary scraps of code in the postinst and postrm scripts. · Language info file installdeb-aspell also checks a file containing aspell dictionary information, called debian/info-aspell or debian/package.info-aspell. If this file is successfully parsed, it is installed in the /var/lib/dictionaries-common/aspell directory. · Debconf files As opposed to installdeb-ispell and installdeb-wordlist, neither installdeb-aspell nor installdeb-hunspell do anything related to debconf files, since both aspell and hunspell rely on the environment variable "LANG" for default dictionary selection instead of using symlinks set after a debconf question on dictionary installation. For that reason if you need to add debconf stuff with debhelper to your aspell or hunspell dictionary package do it in the usual way and call dh_installdebconf(1) as for any other package. · Extra installdeb-aspell options in Language info file For benefit of aspell dictionaries using aspell-autobuildhash, installdeb-aspell script will look for 'auto-compat' and 'auto-contents' fields in $lang.info-aspell, containing base name(s) of your compat and, if needed, contents file(s). If 'auto-compat' entry is found two debhelper snippets are added, one to create/reset compatfile(s) in postinst and the other to remove files in a removal list (initially containing compat files) from postrm. If 'auto-contents' entry is found, contents file at debian/ will be parsed and its contents added to the removal list, otherwise a hash with the same basename of the compatfile is expected and added to the removal list. Unless previous stuff exists, /usr/lib/aspell}/$dict.rws -> /var/lib/aspell/$dict.rws symlinks will also be automatically created. If you use a contents file and enable it in 'auto-contents' you usually will need only the same base name enabled in 'auto-compat'.
The usual dephelper(1) options are accepted.
This program is not part of debhelper, although it is intended to be used in aspell dictionary packages using debhelper in its building.
