NAME

dh_installemacsen - register an Emacs add on package  

SYNOPSIS

dh_installemacsen [debhelperĀ options] [-n] [--priority=n] [--flavor=foo]  

DESCRIPTION

dh_installemacsen is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing files used by the Debian emacsen-common package into package build directories.

It also automatically generates the preinst postinst and prerm commands needed to register a package as an Emacs add on package. The commands are added to the maintainer scripts by dh_installdeb. See dh_installdeb(1) for an explanation of how this works.  

FILES

debian/package.emacsen-compat
Installed into usr/lib/emacsen-common/packages/compat/package in the package build directory.
debian/package.emacsen-install
Installed into usr/lib/emacsen-common/packages/install/package in the package build directory.
debian/package.emacsen-remove
Installed into usr/lib/emacsen-common/packages/remove/package in the package build directory.
debian/package.emacsen-startup
Installed into etc/emacs/site-start.d/50package.el in the package build directory. Use --priority to use a different priority than 50.
 

OPTIONS

-n, --noscripts
Do not modify postinst/prerm scripts.
--priority=n
Sets the priority number of a site-start.d file. Default is 50.
--flavor=foo
Sets the flavor a site-start.d file will be installed in. Default is emacs, alternatives include xemacs and emacs20.
 

NOTES

Note that this command is not idempotent. dh_prep(1) should be called between invocations of this command. Otherwise, it may cause multiple instances of the same text to be added to maintainer scripts.
