dh_install - install files into package build directories


dh_install [-Xitem] [--autodest] [--sourcedir=dir] [debhelper options]
[file|dir ... destdir]


dh_install is a debhelper program that handles installing files into package build
directories. There are many dh_install* commands that handle installing specific types of
files such as documentation, examples, man pages, and so on, and they should be used when
possible as they often have extra intelligence for those particular tasks. dh_install,
then, is useful for installing everything else, for which no particular intelligence is
needed. It is a replacement for the old dh_movefiles command.

This program may be used in one of two ways. If you just have a file or two that the
upstream Makefile does not install for you, you can run dh_install on them to move them
into place. On the other hand, maybe you have a large package that builds multiple binary
packages. You can use the upstream Makefile to install it all into debian/tmp, and then
use dh_install to copy directories and files from there into the proper package build

From debhelper compatibility level 7 on, dh_install will fall back to looking in
debian/tmp for files, if it doesn't find them in the current directory (or wherever you've
told it to look using --sourcedir).
