dh_clean - clean up package build directories
dh_clean [debhelperÂ options] [-k] [-d] [-Xitem] [pathÂ ...]
is a debhelper program that is responsible for cleaning up
after a package is built. It removes the package build
directories, and removes some other files including
debian/files, and any detritus left behind by other
debhelper commands. It also removes common files that should
not appear in a Debian diff:
#*# *~ DEADJOE *.orig *.rej *.SUMS TAGS .deps/* *.P *-stamp
It does not run "make clean" to clean up after the build process. Use dh_auto_clean(1) to do things like that.
dh_clean should be the last debhelper command run in the clean target in debian/rules.
Can list other paths to be removed.
Note that directories listed in this file must end with a trailing slash. Any content in these directories will be removed as well.
This is deprecated, use dh_prep(1) instead.
The option is removed in compat 12.
Only clean the package build directories, do not clean up any other files at all.
Exclude files that contain item anywhere in their filename from being deleted, even if they would normally be deleted. You may use this option multiple times to build up a list of things to exclude.
Delete these paths too.
Note that directories passed as arguments must end with a trailing slash. Any content in these directories will be removed as well.
This program is a part of debhelper.
