NAMEdh_undocumented - make symlinks to undocumented.7.gz man page
SYNOPSISdh_undocumented [debhelper options] [-A] [manpage ...]
DESCRIPTIONdh_undocumented is a debhelper program that is responsible for making symlinks to undocumented(7) for man pages that are not present in your package.
The program takes a list of man pages that should be symlinked to undocumented(7). It examines the extension to see what section the man page belongs in. After figuring this out, it generates the necessary symlinks.
The lists of man pages that need symlinks can be specified in two ways. Any man page names specified as parameters will be set up in the first package dh_undocumented 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.
Note that Debian policy prohibits links to undocumented(7) unless the package has an open bug report stating that it has no man page. You should really just write a man page instead; this program is an easy way out.
