NAME

dh_builddeb - build Debian binary packages  

SYNOPSIS

dh_builddeb [debhelper¬†options] [--destdir=directory] [--filename=name] [--¬†params]  

DESCRIPTION

dh_builddeb simply calls dpkg-deb(1) to build a Debian package or packages. It will also build dbgsym packages when dh_strip(1) and dh_gencontrol(1) have prepared them.

It supports building multiple binary packages in parallel, when enabled by DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS.

When the Rules-Requires-Root field is not (effectively) binary-targets, dh_builddeb will pass --root-owner-group to dpkg-deb(1).  

OPTIONS

--destdir=directory
Use this if you want the generated .deb files to be put in a directory other than the default of "..".
--filename=name
Use this if you want to force the generated .deb file to have a particular file name. Does not work well if more than one .deb is generated!
-- params
Pass params to dpkg-deb(1) when it is used to build the package.
-uparams
This is another way to pass params to dpkg-deb(1). It is deprecated; use -- instead.
