DH_PERL(1)				    Debhelper				       DH_PERL(1)

NAME
       dh_perl - calculates Perl dependencies and cleans up after MakeMaker

SYNOPSIS
       dh_perl [debhelperoptions] [-d] [librarydirs...]

DESCRIPTION
       dh_perl is a debhelper program that is responsible for generating the ${perl:Depends}
       substitutions and adding them to substvars files.

       The program will look at Perl scripts and modules in your package, and will use this
       information to generate a dependency on perl or perlapi. The dependency will be
       substituted into your package's control file wherever you place the token ${perl:Depends}.

       dh_perl also cleans up empty directories that MakeMaker can generate when installing Perl
       modules.

OPTIONS
       -d  In some specific cases you may want to depend on perl-base rather than the full perl
	   package. If so, you can pass the -d option to make dh_perl generate a dependency on
	   the correct base package. This is only necessary for some packages that are included
	   in the base system.

	   Note that this flag may cause no dependency on perl-base to be generated at all. perl-
	   base is Essential, so its dependency can be left out, unless a versioned dependency is
	   needed.

       -V  By default, scripts and architecture independent modules don't depend on any specific
	   version of perl. The -V option causes the current version of the perl (or perl-base
	   with -d) package to be specified.

       library dirs
	   If your package installs Perl modules in non-standard directories, you can make
	   dh_perl check those directories by passing their names on the command line. It will
	   only check the vendorlib and vendorarch directories by default.

CONFORMS TO
