DH_GENCONTROL(1)                   Debhelper                  DH_GENCONTROL(1)

NAME
       dh_gencontrol - generate and install control file

SYNOPSIS
       dh_gencontrol [debhelperoptions] [--params]

DESCRIPTION
       dh_gencontrol is a debhelper program that is responsible for generating
       control files, and installing them into the DEBIAN directory with the
       proper permissions.

       This program is merely a wrapper around dpkg-gencontrol(1), which calls
       it once for each package being acted on (plus related dbgsym packages),
       and passes in some additional useful flags.

       Note that if you use dh_gencontrol, you must also use dh_builddeb(1) to
       build the packages.  Otherwise, your build may fail to build as
       dh_gencontrol (via dpkg-gencontrol(1)) declares which packages are
       built.  As debhelper automatically generates dbgsym packages, it some
       times adds additional packages, which will be built by dh_builddeb(1).

OPTIONS
       -- params
           Pass params to dpkg-gencontrol(1).

       -uparams, --dpkg-gencontrol-params=params
           This is another way to pass params to dpkg-gencontrol(1).  It is
           deprecated; use -- instead.

SEE ALSO

       This program is a part of debhelper.
