dh_fixperms - fix permissions of files in package build directories
is a debhelper program that is responsible for setting the
permissions of files and directories in package build directories to a
sane state --- a state that complies with Debian policy.
dh_fixperms makes all files in usr/share/doc in the package build directory
(excluding files in the examples/ directory) be mode 644. It also changes
the permissions of all man pages to mode 644. It makes all files be owned
by root, and it removes group and other write permission from all files. It
removes execute permissions from any libraries, headers, Perl modules, or
desktop files that have it set. It makes all files in the standard bin and
sbin directories, usr/games/ and etc/init.d executable (since v4). Finally,
it removes the setuid and setgid bits from all files in the package.
- -Xitem, --exclude item
Exclude files that contain item anywhere in their filename from having
their permissions changed. You may use this option multiple times to build
up a list of things to exclude.
This program is a part of debhelper.
