NAME
dh_prep - perform cleanups in preparation for building a binary package SYNOPSIS
dh_prep [debhelperoptions] [-Xitem] DESCRIPTION
dh_prep is a debhelper program that performs some file cleanups in preparation for building a binary package. (This is what dh_clean -k used to do.) It removes the package build directories, debian/tmp, and some temp files that are generated when building a binary package. It is typically run at the top of the binary-arch and binary-indep targets, or at the top of a target such as install that they depend on. OPTIONS
-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. SEE ALSO
debhelper(7) This program is a part of debhelper. AUTHOR

NAME
dh_clean - clean up package build directories SYNOPSIS
dh_clean [debhelperoptions] [-k] [-d] [-Xitem] [file...] DESCRIPTION
dh_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 It does not run "make clean" to clean up after the build process. Use dh_auto_clean(1) to do things like that. dh_clean (or "dh clean") should be the last debhelper command run in the clean target in debian/rules. FILES
debian/clean Can list other files to be removed. OPTIONS
-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. SEE ALSO
