DH_QUILT_UNPATCH(1) Debhelper DH_QUILT_UNPATCH(1)

NAME

dh_quilt_unpatch - unapply patches listed in debian/patches/series

SYNOPSIS

dh_quilt_unpatch [debhelper options]

DESCRIPTION

dh_quilt_unpatch simply calls quilt pop -a after having set the environment variable QUILT_PATCHES to debian/patches. All patches listed in debian/patches/series are then unapplied in the current directory. The command does not fail if the patches have already been unapplied.
You can use another directory instead of debian/patches by setting (and exporting) the environment variable QUILT_PATCH_DIR.

EXAMPLES

dh_quilt_unpatch is usually called indirectly in a rules file via the dh command.
        %:
                dh $@ --with quilt
It can also be direcly called in the clean rule.
        clean:
                dh_testdir
                dh_testroot
                [ ! -f Makefile ] || $(MAKE) clean
                dh_quilt_unpatch
                dh_clean

NOTES

This tool is useless if you use the source package format 3.0 (quilt). Consider switching to this source format if you haven't done it yet.
