NAME

dh_auto_clean - automatically cleans up after a build  

SYNOPSIS

dh_auto_clean [build system options] [debhelper options] [-- params]  

DESCRIPTION

dh_auto_clean is a debhelper program that tries to automatically clean up after a package build. It does so by running the appropriate command for the build system it detects the package uses. For example, if there's a Makefile and it contains a ``distclean'', ``realclean'', or ``clean'' target, then this is done by running make (or MAKE, if the environment variable is set). If there is a setup.py or Build.PL, it is run to clean the package.

This is intended to work for about 90% of packages. If it doesn't work, or tries to use the wrong clean target, you're encouraged to skip using dh_auto_clean at all, and just run make clean manually.  

OPTIONS

See ``BUILD SYSTEM OPTIONS'' in debhelper(7) for a list of common build system selection and control options.
-- params
Pass ``params'' to the program that is run. These can be used to supplement or override the any standard parameters that dh_auto_clean passes.
