dh_fixperms - fix permissions of files in package build directories
dh_fixperms [debhelperoptions] [-Xitem]
dh_fixperms 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.
