dh_octave_version - check Octave version dependency for an Octave-Forge package
dh_octave_version is intended to be run from the top-level source directory of an Octave add-on package. It checks whether the version of the Octave program installed in the system satisfies the dependency specified in the package's DESCRIPTION file.
debhelper(7), dh(1), dh_octave_substvar(1), dh_octave_clean(1), dh_octave_check(1), dh_octave_changelogs(1), dh_octave_examples(1) This program is meant to be used together with debhelper for Debian packages derived from Octave-Forge packages. It is recommended to enable it by adding the dh-sequence-octave virtual package to Build-Depends, Build-Depends-Arch or Build-Depends-Indep. This is equivalent to adding dh-octave to the same field and adding --with=octave to the dh sequencer in debian/rules, except that only -arch/-indep/profiled builds are affected. This is also slightly more simple in the most common case.
