    Command:

    dpkg-gencontrol

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           dpkg-gencontrol [option...]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           dpkg-gencontrol  reads  information from an unpacked Debian source tree
           and  generates  a  binary  package  control  file  (which  defaults  to
           debian/tmp/DEBIAN/control);  during  this  process it will simplify the
           relation fields.
    
           Thus Pre-Depends, Depends, Recommends and Suggests  are  simplified  in
           this  order by removing dependencies which are known to be true accord-
           ing to the stronger dependencies already parsed. It  will  also  remove
           any self-dependency (in fact it will remove any dependency which evalu-
           ates to true given the current version of the  package  as  installed).
           Logically  it  keeps  the  intersection of multiple dependencies on the
           same package. The order of dependencies is preserved as best as  possi-
           ble:  if  any  dependency  must  be discarded due to another dependency
           appearing further in the field, the superseding  dependency  will  take
           the place of the discarded one.
    
           The  other  relation  fields (Enhances, Conflicts, Breaks, Replaces and
           Provides) are also simplified individually by computing  the  union  of
           the various dependencies when a package is listed multiple times in the
           field.
    
           dpkg-gencontrol  also  adds  an  entry  for  the  binary   package   to
           debian/files.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -vversion
                  Sets the version number of the binary package which will be gen-
                  erated.
    
           -Vname=value
                  Set an output substitution variable.  See  deb-substvars(5)  for
                  discussion of output substitution.
    
           -Tsubstvarsfile
                  Read  substitution  variables  in  substvarsfile; the default is
                  debian/substvars.  This option can be  used  multiple  times  to
                  read substitution variables from multiple files.
    
           -Dfield=value
                  Override or add an output control file field.
    
           -Ufield
                  Remove an output control file field.
    
           -ccontrolfile
                  Specifies the main source control file to read information from.
                  The default is debian/control.
    
                  Generate information for the binary  package  package.   If  the
                  source  control  file  lists  only  one binary package then this
                  option may be omitted; otherwise it is essential to select which
                  binary package's information to generate.
    
           -nfilename
                  Assume  the  filename of the package will be filename instead of
                  the normal package_version_arch.deb filename.
    
           -is, -ip, -isp
                  These options are ignored for compatibility with older  versions
                  of dpkg-dev but are now deprecated. Previously they were used to
                  tell dpkg-gencontrol to include the Section and Priority  fields
                  in  the  control file. This is now the default behaviour. If you
                  want to get the old behaviour you  can  use  the  -U  option  to
                  delete the fields from the control file.
    
           -Ppackagebuilddir
                  Tells  dpkg-source  that  the package is being built in package-
                  builddir instead of debian/tmp.  This value is used to find  the
                  default  value  of  the Installed-Size substitution variable and
                  control file field (using du), and for the default  location  of
                  the output file.
    
           -O     Print  the  control  file  to  standard  output,  rather than to
                  debian/tmp/DEBIAN/control (or packagebuilddir/DEBIAN/control  if
                  -P was used).
    
           -h, --help
                  Show the usage message and exit.
    
           --version
                  Show the version and exit.
    
    
    

    FILES

           debian/control
                  The  main  source control information file, giving version-inde-
                  pendent information about the  source  package  and  the  binary
                  packages it can produce.
    
           debian/files
                  The  list  of generated files which are part of the upload being
                  prepared.  dpkg-gencontrol adds the presumed filenames of binary
                  packages whose control files it generates here.
