DH_MD5SUMS(1)                   Debhelper                  DH_MD5SUMS(1)

NAME         top

       dh_md5sums - generate DEBIAN/md5sums file

SYNOPSIS         top

       dh_md5sums [debhelper options] [-x] [-Xitem]

DESCRIPTION         top

       dh_md5sums is a debhelper program that is responsible for
       generating a DEBIAN/md5sums file, which lists the md5sums of each
       file in the package.  These files are used by dpkg --verify or
       the debsums(1) program.

       All files in DEBIAN/ are omitted from the md5sums file, as are
       all conffiles (unless you use the --include-conffiles switch).

       The md5sums file is installed with proper permissions and

OPTIONS         top

       -x, --include-conffiles
           Include conffiles in the md5sums list. Note that this
           information is redundant since it is included elsewhere in
           Debian packages.

       -Xitem, --exclude=item
           Exclude files that contain item anywhere in their filename
           from being listed in the md5sums file.
