dh_auto_clean - automatically cleans up after a build
[build system options
] [debhelper 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
, or clean
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
dh_auto_clean at all, and just run make clean manually.
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.
