dh_clean - clean up package build directories
dh_clean [debhelper options] [-k] [-d] [-Xitem] [file ...]
dh_clean is a debhelper program that is responsible for cleaning up after a package is built. It removes the package build directories, and removes some other files including debian/files, and any detritus left behind by other debhelper commands. It also removes common files that should not appear in a debian diff: #*# *~ DEADJOE *.orig *.rej *.SUMS TAGS .deps/* *.P *-stamp
The debian/clean file can list other files to be removed.
It does not run "make clean" to clean up after the build process. Use dh_auto_clean(1) to do that.
dh_clean (or "dh clean") should be the last debhelper command run in the clean target in debian/rules.
This program is a part of debhelper.
