       dh_installinfo - install and register info files

       dh_installinfo [debhelper options] [-A] [-n] [file ...]

       dh_installinfo is a debhelper program that is responsible for
       installing info files and registering the files it installs with

       Note that install-info determines some information about the info files
       by parsing them, in particular, it looks at the INFO-DIR-SECTION line
       to determine what section the info file belongs in.

       Any filenames specified as parameters will be installed into the first
       package dh_installinfo 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.

       Files named debian/package.info can list other files to be installed.

       dh_installinfo will automatically generate the postinst and prerm com
       mands needed to interface with install-info, updating the info . See
       dh_installdeb(1) for an explanation of how this works.

       -A, --all
	   Install all files specified by command line parameters in ALL pack
	   ages acted on.

       -n, --noscripts
	   Do not modify postinst/prerm scripts.

       file ...
	   Install these info files into the first package acted on. (Or in
	   all packages if -A is specified).

       Note that this command is not idempotent. "dh_clean -k" should be
       called between invocations of this command. Otherwise, it may cause
       multiple instances of the same text to be added to maintainer scripts.


       This program is a part of debhelper.
