dh_fixperms - fix permissions of files in package build directories


dh_fixperms [debhelper options] [-Xitem]


dh_fixperms is a debhelper program that is responsible for setting the permissions of
files and directories in package build directories to a sane state -- a state that
complies with Debian policy.

dh_fixperms makes all files in usr/share/doc in the package build directory (excluding
files in the examples/ directory) be mode 644. It also changes the permissions of all man
pages to mode 644. It makes all files be owned by root, and it removes group and other
write permission from all files. It removes execute permissions from any libraries,
headers, Perl modules, or desktop files that have it set. It makes all files in the
standard bin and sbin directories, usr/games/ and etc/init.d executable (since v4).
Finally, it removes the setuid and setgid bits from all files in the package.


-Xitem, --exclude item
Exclude files that contain item anywhere in their filename from having their
permissions changed. You may use this option multiple times to build up a list of
things to exclude.
