NAME

dh_installexamples - install example files into package build directories  

SYNOPSIS

dh_installexamples [debhelper options] [-A] [-Xitem] [file ...]  

DESCRIPTION

dh_installexamples is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing examples into usr/share/doc/package/examples in package build directories.

Any file names specified as parameters will be installed into the first package dh_installexamples is told to act on. By default, this is the first binary package in debian/control, but if you use -p, -i, or -a flags, it will be the first package specified by those flags.

Files named debian/package.examples can list other files to be installed.  

OPTIONS

-A, --all
Install any files specified by command line parameters in ALL packages acted on.
file ...
Install these files as examples into the first package acted on. (Or into all packages if -A is specified.)
-Xitem, --exclude=item
Exclude files that contain ``item'' anywhere in their filename from being installed.
 

NOTES

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.
