NAMEdh_clean - clean up package build directories
SYNOPSISdh_clean [debhelper options] [-k] [-d] [-Xitem] [file ...]
DESCRIPTIONdh_clean is a debhelper program that is responsible for cleaning up after a package is built. It removes the package build directories, and removes some other files including debian/files, and any detritus left behind by other debhelper commands. It also removes common files that should not appear in a debian diff:
#*# *~ DEADJOE *.orig *.rej *.SUMS TAGS .deps/* *.P *-stamp
The debian/clean file can list other files to be removed.
It does not run ``make clean'' to clean up after the build process. Use dh_auto_clean(1) to do things like that.
- -k, --keep
- This is deprecated, use dh_prep(1) instead.
- -d, --dirs-only
- Only clean the package build directories, do not clean up any other files at all.
- -Xitem --exclude=item
- Exclude files that contain ``item'' anywhere in their filename from being deleted, even if they would normally be deleted. You may use this option multiple times to build up a list of things to exclude.
- file ...
- Delete these files too.
