NAME         top

       dh_installcatalogs - install and register SGML Catalogs

SYNOPSIS         top

       dh_installcatalogs [debhelper options] [-n]

DESCRIPTION         top

       dh_installcatalogs is a debhelper program that installs and
       registers SGML catalogs. It complies with the Debian XML/SGML

       Catalogs will be registered in a supercatalog, in

       This command automatically adds maintainer script snippets for
       registering and unregistering the catalogs and supercatalogs
       (unless -n is used). These snippets are inserted into the
       maintainer scripts and the triggers file by dh_installdeb; see
       dh_installdeb(1) for an explanation of Debhelper maintainer
       script snippets.

       A dependency on sgml-base will be added to ${misc:Depends}, so be
       sure your package uses that variable in debian/control.

FILES         top

           Lists the catalogs to be installed per package. Each line in
           that file should be of the form "source dest", where source
           indicates where the catalog resides in the source tree, and
           dest indicates the destination location for the catalog under
           the package build area. dest should start with

           Supports substitution variables in compat 13 and later as
           documented in debhelper(7).

OPTIONS         top

       -n, --no-scripts
           Do not modify postinst/postrm/prerm scripts nor add an
           activation trigger.

NOTES         top

       Note that this command is not idempotent. dh_prep(1) should be
       called between invocations of this command. Otherwise, it may
       cause multiple instances of the same text to be added to
       maintainer scripts.
