DH_INSTALLINFO(1)               Debhelper              DH_INSTALLINFO(1)

NAME         top

       dh_installinfo - install info files

SYNOPSIS         top

       dh_installinfo [debhelper options] [-A] [file ...]

DESCRIPTION         top

       dh_installinfo is a debhelper program that is responsible for
       installing info files into usr/share/info in the package build

       From debhelper compatibility level 11 on, dh_install will fall
       back to looking in debian/tmp for files, if it does not find them
       in the current directory (or wherever you've told it to look
       using --sourcedir).

FILES         top

           List info files to be installed.

           Supports substitution variables in compat 13 and later as
           documented in debhelper(7).

OPTIONS         top

       -A, --all
           Install all files specified by command line parameters in ALL
           packages acted on.

           Look in the specified directory for files to be installed.
           This option requires compat 11 or later (it is silently
           ignored in compat 10 or earlier).

           Note that this is not the same as the --sourcedirectory
           option used by the dh_auto_* commands. You rarely need to use
           this option, since dh_installinfo automatically looks for
           files in debian/tmp in debhelper compatibility level 11 and

       file ...
           Install these info files into the first package acted on. (Or
           in all packages if -A is specified).
