directive in the triggers control file.
Arranges that changes to this package's state will activate the specified trigger. The trigger will be activated at the start of the
following operations: unpack, configure, remove (including for the benefit of a conflicting package), purge and deconfigure.
If this package disappears during the unpacking of another package the trigger will be activated when the disappearance is noted
towards the end of the unpack. Trigger processing, and transition from triggers-awaited to installed, does not cause activations. In
the case of unpack, triggers mentioned in both the old and new versions of the package will be activated.
Unknown directives are an error which will prevent installation of the package.
