DH_CLEAN(1)				    Debhelper				      DH_CLEAN(1)

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
       debhelper(7)

       This program is a part of debhelper.
