NAME

dh_md5sums - generate DEBIAN/md5sums file  

SYNOPSIS

dh_md5sums [debhelper options] [-x] [-Xitem] [--include-conffiles]  

DESCRIPTION

dh_md5sums is a debhelper program that is responsible for generating a DEBIAN/md5sums file, which lists the md5sums of each file in the package. These files are used by the debsums package.

All files in DEBIAN/ are omitted from the md5sums file, as are all conffiles (unless you use the --include-conffiles switch).

The md5sums file is installed with proper permissions and ownerships.  

OPTIONS

-x, --include-conffiles
Include conffiles in the md5sums list. Note that this information is redundant since it is included elsewhere in debian packages.
-Xitem, --exclude=item
Exclude files that contain ``item'' anywhere in their filename from being listed in the md5sums file.
