NAMEdh_installinfo - install and register info files
SYNOPSISdh_installinfo [debhelper options] [-A] [-n] [file ...]
DESCRIPTIONdh_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.
NOTESNote 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.
