NAME

dh_fixperms - fix permissions of files in package build directories  

SYNOPSIS

dh_fixperms [debhelper options] [-Xitem]  

DESCRIPTION

dh_fixperms is a debhelper program that is responsible for setting the permissions of files and directories in package build directories to a sane state --- a state that complies with Debian policy.

dh_fixperms makes all files in usr/share/doc in the package build directory (excluding files in the examples/ directory) be mode 644. It also changes the permissions of all man pages to mode 644. It makes all files be owned by root, and it removes group and other write permission from all files. It removes execute permissions from any libraries, headers, perl modules, or desktop files that have it set. It makes all files in the standard bin and sbin directories, usr/games/ and etc/init.d executable (since v4). Finally, it removes the setuid and setgid bits from all files in the package.  

OPTIONS

-Xitem, --exclude item
Exclude files that contain ``item'' anywhere in their filename from having their permissions changed. You may use this option multiple times to build up a list of things to exclude.
