NAME         top

       dpkg-distaddfile - add entries to debian/files

SYNOPSIS         top

       dpkg-distaddfile [option...] filename section priority

DESCRIPTION         top

       dpkg-distaddfile adds an entry for a named file to debian/files.

       It takes three non-option arguments, the filename and the section
       and priority for the .changes file.

       The filename should be specified relative to the directory where
       dpkg-genchanges will expect to find the files, usually .., rather
       than being a pathname relative to the current directory when
       dpkg-distaddfile is run.

OPTIONS         top

              Read or write the list of files to be uploaded here,
              rather than using debian/files.

       -?, --help
              Show the usage message and exit.

              Show the version and exit.

ENVIRONMENT         top

              accepted values are: auto (default), always and never.

              If set, it will be used to decide whether to activate
              Native Language Support, also known as
              internationalization (or i18n) support (since dpkg
              1.19.0).  The accepted values are: 0 and 1 (default).

FILES         top

              The list of generated files which are part of the upload
              being prepared.  dpkg-distaddfile can be used to add
              additional files.
