NAME         top

       dh_installinfo - install info files

SYNOPSIS         top

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

DESCRIPTION         top

       dh_installinfo is a debhelper program that is responsible for
       installing info files into usr/share/info in the package build

       From debhelper compatibility level 11 on, dh_install will fall back
       to looking in debian/tmp for files, if it does not find them in the
       current directory (or wherever you've told it to look using

FILES         top

           List info files to be installed.

OPTIONS         top

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

           Look in the specified directory for files to be installed.  This
           option requires compat 11 or later (it is silently ignored in
           compat 10 or earlier).

           Note that this is not the same as the --sourcedirectory option
           used by the dh_auto_* commands. You rarely need to use this
           option, since dh_installinfo automatically looks for files in
           debian/tmp in debhelper compatibility level 11 and above.

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