NAME         top

       dh_prep - perform cleanups in preparation for building a binary

SYNOPSIS         top

       dh_prep [debhelper options] [-Xitem]

DESCRIPTION         top

       dh_prep is a debhelper program that performs some file cleanups
       in preparation for building a binary package. (This is what
       dh_clean -k used to do.) It removes the package build
       directories, debian/tmp, and some temp files that are generated
       when building a binary package.

       It is typically run at the top of the binary-arch and binary-
       indep targets, or at the top of a target such as install that
       they depend on.

OPTIONS         top

       -Xitem --exclude=item
           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.
