Section: Debhelper (1)
dh_md5sums - generate DEBIAN/md5sums file
is a debhelper program that is responsible for generating
file, which lists the md5sums of each file in the package.
These files are used by dpkg --verify
or the debsums
All files in DEBIAN/ are omitted from the md5sums file, as are all
conffiles (unless you use the --include-conffiles switch).
The md5sums file is installed with proper permissions and ownerships.
- -x, --include-conffiles
Include conffiles in the md5sums list. Note that this information is
redundant since it is included elsewhere in Debian packages.
- -Xitem, --exclude=item
Exclude files that contain item anywhere in their filename from
being listed in the md5sums file.
This program is a part of debhelper.
