dh_installexamples — install example files into package build directories
dh_installexamples [debhelper options] [-A] [-Xitem] [file ...]
dh_installexamples is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing examples into usr/share/doc/package/examples in package build directories.
Lists example files or directories to be installed.
- -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.)
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.
This program is a part of debhelper.
