       dh_di_numbers - install numbered scripts into package build directories


       dh_di_numbers [debhelper options] [dir [...] dest]


       dh_di_numbers is a debhelper program that installs directories of
       numbered scripts into package build directories.

       Within each directory, there should be a "_numbers" file in which each
       line contains at least two space-separated fields. The first field in
       each line is a two-digit number, which will be prefixed to the entry
       name to provide ordering within the directory; the second is the entry
       name, which must correspond to a file or directory alongside the
       "_numbers" file; and the third field, if present, is another two-digit
       number which identifies another entry with the same entry name to which
       this entry should be a symlink.

       Any additional directory names specified as parameters will be
       installed in the package build directory of the first package
       dh_di_numbers is told to act on. By default, this is the first binary
       package in debian/control, but if you use -p, -i, or -a flags, it will
       be the first package specified by those flags.


           List the directories to install into each package and the directory
           they should be installed to. The format is a set of lines, where
           each line lists a directory or directories to install, and at the
           end of the line tells the directory they should be installed in.
           The name of the directories to install should be given relative to
           the current directory, while the installation directory is given
           relative to the package build directory. You may use wildcards in
           the names of the files to install (in v3 mode and above).


       dir [...] dest
           Lists directories to install and where to install them to. The
           files will be installed into the first package dh_di_numbers acts



       This program is a part of dh-di.
