DH_CLEAN(1)                        Debhelper                       DH_CLEAN(1)

NAME
       dh_clean - clean up package build directories

SYNOPSIS
       dh_clean [debhelperoptions] [-k] [-d] [-Xitem] [path...]

DESCRIPTION
       dh_clean is a debhelper program that is responsible for cleaning up
       after a package is built. It removes the package build directories, and
       removes some other files including debian/files, and any detritus left
       behind by other debhelper commands. It also removes common files that
       should not appear in a Debian diff:
         #*# *~ DEADJOE *.orig *.rej *.SUMS TAGS .deps/* *.P *-stamp

       It does not run "make clean" to clean up after the build process. Use
       dh_auto_clean(1) to do things like that.

       dh_clean should be the last debhelper command run in the clean target
       in debian/rules.

FILES
       debian/clean
           Can list other paths to be removed.

           Note that directories listed in this file must end with a trailing
           slash.  Any content in these directories will be removed as well.

OPTIONS
       -k, --keep
           This is deprecated, use dh_prep(1) instead.

           The option is removed in compat 11.

       -d, --dirs-only
           Only clean the package build directories, do not clean up any other
           files at all.

       -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.

       path ...
           Delete these paths too.

           Note that directories passed as arguments must end with a trailing
           slash.  Any content in these directories will be removed as well.
