NAME

dh_installdirs - create subdirectories in package build directories  

SYNOPSIS

dh_installdirs [debhelper¬†options] [-A] [--sourcedir=dir] [--create-in-sourcedir] [dir¬†...]  

DESCRIPTION

dh_installdirs is a debhelper program that is responsible for creating subdirectories in package build directories.

Many packages can get away with omitting the call to dh_installdirs completely. Notably, other dh_* commands are expected to create directories as needed.  

FILES

debian/package.dirs
Lists directories to be created in package.

Generally, there is no need to list directories created by the upstream build system or directories needed by other debhelper commands.

 

OPTIONS

-A, --all
Create any directories specified by command line parameters in ALL packages acted on, not just the first.
--create-in-sourcedir, --no-create-in-sourcedir
Whether to create the specified directories in the source directory (usually debian/tmp) in addition to in the package build directory (usually debian/package).

The default is --no-create-in-sourcedir.

--sourcedir=dir
Consider dir the source directory for the packages acted on instead of the default (which is usually debian/tmp).

Please note that this option is dependent on the --create-in-sourcedir option (when --no-create-in-sourcedir is in effect, this option does nothing in dh_installdirs).

dir ...
Create these directories in the package build directory of the first package acted on. (Or in all packages if -A is specified.)
