dh_auto_clean - automatically cleans up after a build
[build system options
] [ -- params
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
and it contains a distclean
target, then this is done by running make
if the environment variable is set). If there is a setup.py
, 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
at all, and just run make clean
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.
This program is a part of debhelper.
