dpkg-distaddfile — add entries to debian/files


dpkg-distaddfile [option...] filename section priority


dpkg-distaddfile adds an entry for a named file to debian/files.

It takes three non-option arguments, the filename and the section and priority for the .changes file.

The filename should be specified relative to the directory where dpkg-genchanges will expect to find the files, usually .., rather than being a pathname relative to the current directory when dpkg-distaddfile is run.
