install info files


dh_installinfo [debhelper options] [-A] [file ...]


dh_installinfo is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing info files into usr/share/info in the package build directory.

From debhelper compatibility level 11 on, dh_install will fall back to looking in debian/tmp for files, if it does not find them in the current directory (or wherever you've told it to look using --sourcedir).



List info files to be installed.

Supports substitution variables in compat 13 and later as documented in debhelper(7).


-A,  --all

Install all files specified by command line parameters in ALL packages acted on.


Look in the specified directory for files to be installed.  This option requires compat 11 or later (it is silently ignored in compat 10 or earlier).

Note that this is not the same as the --sourcedirectory option used by the dh_auto_* commands. You rarely need to use this option, since dh_installinfo automatically looks for files in debian/tmp in debhelper compatibility level 11 and above.

file ...

Install these info files into the first package acted on. (Or in all packages if -A is specified).
