DH_INSTALLDIRS(1)               Debhelper              DH_INSTALLDIRS(1)

NAME         top

       dh_installdirs - create subdirectories in package build

SYNOPSIS         top

       dh_installdirs [debhelper options] [-A] [--sourcedir=dir]
       [--create-in-sourcedir] [dir ...]

DESCRIPTION         top

       dh_installdirs is a debhelper program that is responsible for
       creating subdirectories in package build directories.

       Many packages can get away with omitting the call to
       dh_installdirs completely.  Notably, other dh_* commands are
       expected to create directories as needed.

FILES         top

           Lists directories to be created in package.

           Generally, there is no need to list directories created by
           the upstream build system or directories needed by other
           debhelper commands.

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

OPTIONS         top

       -A, --all
           Create any directories specified by command line parameters
           in ALL packages acted on, not just the first.

       --create-in-sourcedir, --no-create-in-sourcedir
           Whether to create the specified directories in the source
           directory (usually debian/tmp) in addition to in the package
           build directory (usually debian/package).

           The default is --no-create-in-sourcedir.

           Consider dir the source directory for the packages acted on
           instead of the default (which is usually debian/tmp).

           Please note that this option is dependent on the
           --create-in-sourcedir option (when --no-create-in-sourcedir
           is in effect, this option does nothing in dh_installdirs).

       dir ...
           Create these directories in the package build directory of
           the first package acted on. (Or in all packages if -A is
