NAME

dh_installinfo - install and register info files  

SYNOPSIS

dh_installinfo [debhelper options] [-A] [-n] [file ...]  

DESCRIPTION

dh_installinfo is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing info files and registering the files it installs with install-info.

It determines some information about the info files by parsing them, in particular, it looks at the INFO-DIR-SECTION line to determine what section the info file belongs in.

Any filenames specified as parameters will be installed into the first package dh_installinfo is told to act on. By default, this is the first binary package in debian/control, but if you use -p, -i, or -a flags, it will be the first package specified by those flags.

Files named debian/package.info can list other files to be installed.

dh_installinfo will automatically generate the postinst and prerm commands needed to interface with install-info, updating the info . See dh_installdeb(1) for an explanation of how this works.  

OPTIONS

-A, --all
Install all files specified by command line parameters in ALL packages acted on.
-n, --noscripts
Do not modify postinst/prerm scripts.
file ...
Install these info files into the first package acted on. (Or in all packages if -A is specified).
 

NOTES

Note that this command is not idempotent. ``dh_clean -k'' should be called between invocations of this command. Otherwise, it may cause multiple instances of the same text to be added to maintainer scripts.
