DH_INSTALLDEB(1)                   Debhelper                  DH_INSTALLDEB(1)

NAME
       dh_installdeb - install files into the DEBIAN directory

SYNOPSIS
       dh_installdeb [debhelperoptions]

DESCRIPTION
       dh_installdeb is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing
       files into the DEBIAN directories in package build directories with the
       correct permissions.

FILES
       package.postinst
       package.preinst
       package.postrm
       package.prerm
           These maintainer scripts are installed into the DEBIAN directory.

           Inside the scripts, the token #DEBHELPER# is replaced with shell
           script snippets generated by other debhelper commands.

       package.triggers
       package.shlibs
           These control files are installed into the DEBIAN directory.

           Note that package.shlibs is only installed in compat level 9 and
           earlier.  In compat 10, please use dh_makeshlibs(1).

       package.conffiles
           Historically, this file was needed to manually mark files files as
           conffiles.  However, it has become de facto obsolete since
           debhelper automatically computed which files should be marked as
           conffiles.

           In compatibility level up and including 11, this control file will
           be installed into the DEBIAN directory.  In compatibility level 12
           and later, the file is silently ignored.

       package.maintscript
           Lines in this file correspond to dpkg-maintscript-helper(1)
           commands and parameters.  However, the "maint-script-parameters"
           should not be included as debhelper will add those automatically.

           Example:

               # Correct
               rm_conffile /etc/obsolete.conf 0.2~ foo
               # INCORRECT
               rm_conffile /etc/obsolete.conf 0.2~ foo -- "$@"

           In compat 10 or later, any shell metacharacters will be escaped, so
           arbitrary shell code cannot be inserted here.  For example, a line
           such as "mv_conffile /etc/oldconffile /etc/newconffile" will insert
           maintainer script snippets into all maintainer scripts sufficient
           to move that conffile.

           It was also the intention to escape shell metacharacters in
           previous compat levels.  However, it did not work properly and as
           such it was possible to embed arbitrary shell code in earlier
           compat levels.

           The dh_installdeb tool will do some basic validation of some of the
           commands listed in this file to catch common mistakes.  The
           validation is enabled as a warning since compat 10 and as a hard
           error in compat 12.
