DH_GENCONTROL(1)						     Debhelper							  DH_GENCONTROL(1)

NAME
dh_gencontrol - generate and install control file SYNOPSIS
dh_gencontrol [debhelperoptions] [--params] DESCRIPTION
dh_gencontrol is a debhelper program that is responsible for generating control files, and installing them into the DEBIAN directory with the proper permissions. This program is merely a wrapper around dpkg-gencontrol(1), which calls it once for each package being acted on (plus related dbgsym packages), and passes in some additional useful flags. Note that if you use dh_gencontrol, you must also use dh_builddeb(1) to build the packages. Otherwise, your build may fail to build as dh_gencontrol (via dpkg-gencontrol(1)) declares which packages are built. As debhelper automatically generates dbgsym packages, it some times adds additional packages, which will be built by dh_builddeb(1). OPTIONS
-- params Pass params to dpkg-gencontrol(1). -uparams, --dpkg-gencontrol-params=params This is another way to pass params to dpkg-gencontrol(1). It is deprecated; use -- instead. SEE ALSO
debhelper(7) This program is a part of debhelper. AUTHOR
