dh_gencontrol - generate and install control file


dh_gencontrol [debhelper options] [-- params]


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


-- 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 --
