dh_fixperms - fix permissions of files in package build directories
dh_fixperms [debhelperoptions] [-Xitem]
dh_fixperms is a debhelper program that is responsible for setting the
permissions of files and directories in package build directories to a
sane state -- a state that complies with Debian policy.
dh_fixperms makes all files in usr/share/doc in the package build
directory (excluding files in the examples/ directory) be mode 644. It
also changes the permissions of all man pages to mode 644. It removes
group and other write permission from all files. It removes execute
permissions from any libraries, headers, Perl modules, or desktop files
that have it set. It makes all files in the standard bin and sbin
directories, usr/games/ and etc/init.d executable (since v4). Finally,
it removes the setuid and setgid bits from all files in the package.
When the Rules-Requires-Root field has the (effective) value of binary-
targets, dh_fixperms will also reset the ownership of all paths to
-Xitem, --exclude item
Exclude files that contain item anywhere in their filename from
having their permissions changed. You may use this option multiple
times to build up a list of things to exclude.
This program is a part of debhelper.
