NAME
       dpkg-genbuildinfo - generate Debian .buildinfo files

SYNOPSIS
       dpkg-genbuildinfo [option...]

DESCRIPTION
       dpkg-genbuildinfo  reads  information from an unpacked and built Debian
       source tree and from the files it has generated and generates a  Debian
       control  file  describing the build environment and the build artifacts
       (.buildinfo file).

       This command was introduced in dpkg 1.18.11.

OPTIONS
       --build=type
              Specifies  the  build  type  from  a  comma-separated  list   of
              components.

              The allowed values are:

              any    Generate  build  information  including unqualified build
                     dependencies (Build-Depends)  and  architecture  specific
                     build dependencies (Build-Depends-Arch).

              all    Generate  build  information  including unqualified build
                     dependencies (Build-Depends) and architecture independent
                     build dependencies (Build-Depends-Indep).

              source Effectively ignored; generate build information with just
                     the unqualified build dependencies (Build-Depends).

              binary Generate build information with all three types of  build
                     dependencies.  This is an alias for any,all.

              full   Generate  build information with all three types of build
                     dependencies.  This is an alias for  any,all,source,  and
                     the  same  as  the  default  case when no build option is
                     specified.

       -ccontrolfile
              Specifies the main source control file to read information from.
              The default is debian/control.

       -lchangelog-file
              Specifies  the  changelog  file  to  read  information from. The
              default is debian/changelog.

       -ffiles-list-file
              Specifies where is the list of files that have been produced  by
              the build, rather than using debian/files.

       -Fchangelog-format
              Specifies     the     format     of     the    changelog.    See
              dpkg-parsechangelog(1)   for   information   about   alternative
              formats.

       -O[filename]
              Print  the  buildinfo  file  to  standard output (or filename if
              specified)    rather     than     to     dir/source-name_source-
              version_arch.buildinfo  (where  dir  is .. by default or upload-
              files-dir if -u was used).

       -uupload-files-dir
              Look for the files to be  uploaded  in  upload-files-dir  rather
              than ..  (dpkg-genbuildinfo needs to find these files so that it
              can include their sizes and checksums in the .buildinfo file).

       --always-include-path
              By default, the Build-Path field will only  be  written  if  the
              current directory starts with a whitelisted pattern.

              On  Debian and derivatives the pattern matches on /build/ at the
              start of the pathname.

              Specify this option to always  write  a  Build-Path  field  when
              generating the .buildinfo.

       --admindir=dir
              Change  the  location of the dpkg database. The default location
              is /var/lib/dpkg.

       -q     dpkg-genbuildinfo might produce informative messages on standard
              error.  -q suppresses these messages.

       -?, --help
              Show the usage message and exit.

       --version
              Show the version and exit.

ENVIRONMENT
       DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS
              This  variable can be used to enable or disable various features
              that affect the information included in the .buildinfo file, via
              the buildinfo option (since dpkg 1.18.19).  This option contains
              a comma-separated list of features, prefixed with the '+' or '-'
              modifiers,  to  denote  whether  to enable or disable them.  The
              special feature "all" can be used to enable or disable all other
              features.     The    feature    "path"   controls   whether   to
              unconditionally include the Build-Path field.

FILES
       debian/files
              The list of generated files.  dpkg-genbuildinfo reads  the  data
              here when producing a .buildinfo file.
