dh_installexamples — install example files into package build directories

Synopsis

dh_installexamples [debhelper options] [-A] [-Xitem] [file ...]

Description

dh_installexamples is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing examples into usr/share/doc/package/examples in package build directories.

Files

debian/package.examples
Lists example files or directories to be installed.

Options

-A, --all
Install any files specified by command line parameters in ALL packages acted on.
-Xitem, --exclude=item
Exclude files that contain item anywhere in their filename from being installed.
file ...
Install these files (or directories) as examples into the first package acted on. (Or into all packages if -A is specified.)

Notes

Note that dh_installexamples will happily copy entire directory hierarchies if you ask it to (similar to cp -a). If it is asked to install a directory, it will install the complete contents of the directory.
