       dh_perl - calculates perl dependencies

       dh_perl [debhelper options] [-d] [library dirs ...]

       dh_perl is a debhelper program that is responsible for generating the
       ${perl:Depends} substitutions and adding them to substvars files.

       The program will look at perl scripts and modules in your package, and
       will use this information to generate a dependency on perl or perlapi.
       The dependency will be substituted into your packages control file
       wherever you place the token "${perl:Depends}".

       -d  In some specific cases you may want to depend on perl-base rather
	   than the full perl package. If so, you can pass the -d option to
	   make dh_perl generate a dependency on the correct base package.
	   This is only necessary for some packages that are included in the
	   base system.

	   Note that this flag may cause no dependency on perl-base to be gen
	   erated at all. perl-base is Essential, so its dependency can be
	   left out, unless a versioned dependency is needed.

       -V  By default, scripts and architecture independent modules dont
	   depend on any specific version of perl.  The -V option causes the
	   current version of the perl (or perl-base with -d) package to be

       library dirs
	   If your package installs perl modules in non-standard directories,
	   you can make dh_perl check those directories by passing their names
	   on the command line. It will only check the vendorlib and vendo
	   rarch directories by default.
