dh_strip_nondeterminism - strip uninteresting, nondeterministic
information from files
dh_strip_nondeterminism [debhelperoptions] [-Xitem]
dh_strip_nondeterminism is a debhelper program that is responsible for
stripping uninteresting, nondeterministic information, such as
timestamps, from compiled files so that the build is reproducible.
This program examines your package build directories and works out what
to strip on its own. It uses file(1) and filenames to figure out what
files should have nondeterminism stripped from them. In general it
seems to make very good guesses, and will do the right thing in almost
Exclude files that contain item anywhere in their filename from
being stripped. You may use this option multiple times to build up
a list of things to exclude.
This program is a part of debhelper.
