DH_AUTO_CLEAN(1)                Debhelper               DH_AUTO_CLEAN(1)

NAME         top

       dh_auto_clean - automatically cleans up after a build

SYNOPSIS         top

       dh_auto_clean [build system options] [debhelper options]
       [-- params]

DESCRIPTION         top

       dh_auto_clean is a debhelper program that tries to automatically
       clean up after a package build. It does so by running the
       appropriate command for the build system it detects the package
       uses. For example, if there's a Makefile and it contains a
       distclean, realclean, or clean target, then this is done by
       running make (or MAKE, if the environment variable is set). If
       there is a setup.py or Build.PL, it is run to clean the package.

       This is intended to work for about 90% of packages. If it doesn't
       work, or tries to use the wrong clean target, you're encouraged
       to skip using dh_auto_clean at all, and just run make clean

OPTIONS         top

       See "BUILD SYSTEM OPTIONS" in debhelper(7) for a list of common
       build system selection and control options.

       -- params
           Pass params to the program that is run, after the parameters
           that dh_auto_clean usually passes.
