NAME

       dh_testroot - ensure that a package is built with necessary level of root permissions

SYNOPSIS

       dh_testroot [debhelper options]

DESCRIPTION

       dh_testroot is used to determine if the package has access to at least the level of root
       access that it declared it needed via the Rules-Requires-Root (R³) field.

       The following is how dh_testroot behaves based on the effective value of the R³ field:

       "binary-targets"
           dh_testroot asserts that it is run as root or under fakeroot(1).

       "no"
           dh_testroot returns successfully.

       Any other value than the above
           dh_testroot asserts that it is either run as root (or under fakeroot(1)) or the
           builder has provided the DEB_GAIN_ROOT_CMD environment variable (e.g. via dpkg-
           buildpackage -r).

       For backwards compatibility, dh_testroot will consider the absence of the R³ field as if
       the R³ field was set to "binary-targets".
