       dh_installyorick - install Yorick add-on packages


       dh_installyorick [debhelper options] [-m] [--no-make-install]


       dh_installyorick is a debhelper program that installs the files of your
       Yorick add-on at the right place when building a Debian package. For  a
       simple   plug-in   package,  this  is  mostly  done  by  calling  "make
       DESTDIR=debian/<package>  install"  and  then  moving  arch-independent
       files  to  usr/share. Note that there is no Y_SITE/contrib directory in
       the Debian packages, its content is merged into YSITE/i.

       Calling  "make  ...   install"   can   be   disabled   by   using   the
       "--no-make-install"  flag. This is useful in particular for interpreted
       add-on packages, which do not ship with a standard Yorick Makefile.

       If the "-m" flag is used (but not the "-n" one), dh_installyorick  will
       also  add  lines  to your package’s postinst and postrm scripts to call
       "update-yorickdoc --auto" if the yorick-doc package is installed. It is
       necessary  to  call  dh_installdeb  after  dh_installyorick for this to
       work. It is  usually  not  necessary  with  a  recent  dpkg  supporting
       triggers,  so  this possibility is kept mostly for easing backports and
       should be deprecated soon.

       dh_installyorick will look for a  file  named  debian/<package>.ynstall
       for  additional  files  to install (see YNSTALL FILE below). The prefix
       "<package>." can be omitted for the main  binary  package  being  built
       (usally the first one listed in debian/control).

       For  the time being, Y_SITE=Y_HOME=/usr/lib/yorick. Requests to install
       a   file   under   Y_SITE   results   in   its    installation    under
       /usr/share/yorick.   dh_installyorick   handles  the  creation  of  the
       necessary symbolic links from Y_HOME to /usr/share/yorick.

       Files that are installed in a directory ending in "/bin" or "/sbin", as
       well as files that are pointed at by symbolic link in such a directory,
       are installed with execution permission for everyone.


       -m  Modify postinst/postrm scripts to add a call  to  update-yorickdoc.
           This  is  needed only if the target dpkg does not support triggers.
           If both "-m" and "-n" are specified, the scripts are not  modified.

           Do not call "make DESTDIR=debian/<package> install".

           An additional pkg_mngr .info file to install.

       Additionally,   dh_installyorick   abides  by  the  following  standard
       debhelper options: -a/--arch, -i/--indep, --mainpackage, -n,  --no-act,
       -N/--no-package,   -p/--package,   -P/--tmpdir,   -s/--same-arch,   and


       Blank lines are ignored, several blank character are  counted  as  one,
       and  line starting with "#" (possibly following one or more blanks) are
       ignored. Each non-comment, non-blank line should be of the form:

       file [directory [link]]

       Where file is the file to install, directory the directory it should be
       installed  in,  and  link  an  optional  symbolic  link pointing on the
       installed file.

           the relative path from the top directory of the package  source  to
           the  file.  If  link is not specified, file can contain shell globs
           and actually denote sevral files. If directory is not specified, it
           is  guessed  from  the extension of file: .i files are installed in
           Y_SITE/i,    .gs    and    .gp    in     Y_SITE/g,     .info     in
           Y_SITE/packages/installed,  .packinfo,  .aliases  and  .keywords in
           /usr/share/yorick-doc, and .so in Y_HOME/lib.

           the full path (without leading "/") into which the file  should  be
           installed. If the file is to be installed inside Yorick’s Y_SITE or
           Y_HOME directory (which will almost  alway  be  the  case),  it  is
           possible (and advisable) to not specify the full path, but to write
           "Y_SITE/" or "Y_HOME" followed by the relative path from there.  It
           is  also  possible  to  omit  this "Y_SITE/" or "Y_HOME/" prefix if
           directory starts whith one of: Y_SITE/i, Y_SITE/i0, Y_SITE/i-start,
           Y_SITE/g, Y_SITE/packages, Y_HOME/bin or Y_HOME/lib.

           the full path to a symbolic link that should point to the installed
           file. The same shortcuts apply as for directory.


       The four following lines in debian/ynstall would be equivalent:
       somefile.i /usr/share/yorick/i
       somefile.i Y_SITE/i
       somefile.i i

       Likewise, the following are equivalent:
       somefile.i /usr/share/yorick/i0
       somefile.i Y_SITE/i0
       somefile.i i0

       Example with a symlink. Here, somefile.i  is  a  script  that  is  both
       useful #included from within Yorick or from the command line. Its first
       line reads "#!/usr/bin/yorick -batch".
       somefile.i i usr/bin/command_name


       debhelper(7), update-yorickdoc(1), deb-triggers(5)

       This program is  a  part  of  yorick-dev  but  is  made  to  work  with
       debhelper.  Note  that  only compatibility level 5 has been implemented
       and tested. This script  is  not  idempotent,  dh_clean  -k  should  be
       executed between any two runs.
