dh_installman - install man pages into package build directories
] [manpage ...
dh_installman is a debhelper program that handles installing
man pages into the correct locations in package build directories. You tell
it what man pages go in your packages, and it figures out where to
install them based on the section field in their .TH line. If you have a
properly formatted .TH line, your man page will be installed into the right
directory, with the right name (this includes proper handling of pages
with a subsection, like ``3perl'', which are placed in man3, and given an
extension of ``.3perl''). If your .TH line is incorrect or missing, the program
may guess wrong based on the file extension.
It also supports translated man pages, by looking for extensions
like .ll.8 and .ll_LL.8, or by use of the --language switch.
If dh_installman seems to install a man page into the wrong section or with
the wrong extension, this is because the man page has the wrong section
listed in its .TH line. Edit the man page and correct the section, and
dh_installman will follow suit. See to man(7) for details about the .TH
section. If dh_installman seems to install a man page into a directory
like /usr/share/man/pl/man1/, that is because your program has a
name like ``foo.pl'', and dh_installman assumes that means it is translated
into Polish. Use --language=C to avoid this.
Any man page filenames specified as parameters will be installed into the
first package dh_installman 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.manpages can list other man pages to be
After the man page installation step, dh_installman will check to see if
any of the man pages in the temporary directories of any of the packages it
is acting on contain ``.so'' links. If so, it changes them to symlinks.
- -A, --all
Install all files specified by command line parameters in ALL packages
Use this to specify that the man pages being acted on are written in the
- manpage ...
Install these man pages into the first package acted on. (Or in all
packages if -A is specified).
An older version of this program, dh_installmanpages
(1), is still used
by some packages, and so is still included in debhelper.
It is, however, deprecated, due to its counterintuitive and inconsistent
interface. Use this program instead.
This program is a part of debhelper.
