DH_INSTALLDOCS(1)			    Debhelper				DH_INSTALLDOCS(1)

NAME
       dh_installdocs - install documentation into package build directories

SYNOPSIS
       dh_installdocs [debhelperoptions] [-A] [-Xitem] [file...]

DESCRIPTION
       dh_installdocs is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing documentation
       into usr/share/doc/package in package build directories.

FILES
       debian/package.docs
	   List documentation files to be installed into package.

       debian/copyright
	   The copyright file is installed into all packages, unless a more specific copyright
	   file is available.

       debian/package.copyright
       debian/package.README.Debian
       debian/package.TODO
	   Each of these files is automatically installed if present for a package.

       debian/README.Debian
       debian/TODO
	   These files are installed into the first binary package listed in debian/control.

	   Note that README.debian files are also installed as README.Debian, and TODO files will
	   be installed as TODO.Debian in non-native packages.

       debian/package.doc-base
	   Installed as doc-base control files. Note that the doc-id will be determined from the
	   Document: entry in the doc-base control file in question.

       debian/package.doc-base.*
	   If your package needs to register more than one document, you need multiple doc-base
	   files, and can name them like this.

OPTIONS
       -A, --all
	   Install all files specified by command line parameters in ALL packages acted on.

       -Xitem, --exclude=item
	   Exclude files that contain item anywhere in their filename from being installed. Note
	   that this includes doc-base files.

       --link-doc=package
	   Make the documentation directory of all packages acted on be a symlink to the
	   documentation directory of package. This has no effect when acting on package itself,
	   or if the documentation directory to be created already exists when dh_installdocs is
	   run. To comply with policy, package must be a binary package that comes from the same
	   source package.

	   debhelper will try to avoid installing files into linked documentation directories
	   that would cause conflicts with the linked package. The -A option will have no effect
	   on packages with linked documentation directories, and copyright, changelog,
	   README.Debian, and TODO files will not be installed.

	   (An older method to accomplish the same thing, which is still supported, is to make
	   the documentation directory of a package be a dangling symlink, before calling
	   dh_installdocs.)

       file ...
	   Install these files as documentation into the first package acted on. (Or in all
	   packages if -A is specified).

EXAMPLES
       This is an example of a debian/package.docs file:

	 README
	 TODO
	 debian/notes-for-maintainers.txt
	 docs/manual.txt
	 docs/manual.pdf
	 docs/manual-html/

NOTES
       Note that dh_installdocs 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.

       Note that this command is not idempotent. dh_prep(1) should be called between invocations
       of this command. Otherwise, it may cause multiple instances of the same text to be added
       to maintainer scripts.
