       dh_clean - clean up package build directories

       dh_clean [debhelper options] [-k] [-d] [-Xitem] [file ...]

       dh_clean is a debhelper program that is responsible for cleaning up
       after a package is built. It removes the package build directories, and
       removes some other files including debian/files, and any detritus left
       behind by other debhelper commands. It also removes common files that
       should not appear in a debian diff:
	 #*# *~ DEADJOE *.orig *.rej *.SUMS TAGS core .deps/* *.P

       -k, --keep
	   Do not delete debian/files. When do you want to use this? Anytime
	   you have a debian/rules that has 2 binary targets that build dif
	   ferent .deb packages; for example, one target is binary-arch, and
	   the other is binary-indep, or one target builds the shared library,
	   and the other the -dev package. If you didnt use -k in these
	   cases, then debian/files would be deleted in the middle, and your
	   changes file will only contain the last binary package that was

       -d, --dirs-only
	   Only clean the package build directories, do not clean up any other
	   files at all.

       -Xitem --exclude=item
	   Exclude files that contain "item" anywhere in their filename from
	   being deleted, even if they would normally be deleted. You may use
	   this option multiple times to build up a list of things to exclude.

       file ...
	   Delete these files too.


       This program is a part of debhelper.
