       dh_missing - check for missing files

       dh_missing [-Xitem] [--sourcedir=dir] [debhelperoptions]

       dh_missing compares the list of installed files with the files in the
       source directory. If any of the files (and symlinks) in the source
       directory were not installed to somewhere, it will warn on stderr about
       that (--list-missing) or fail (--fail-missing).

       Please note that in compat 11 and earlier without either of these
       options, dh_missing will silently do nothing.  From compat 12 on,
       --list-missing is the default.

       This may be useful if you have a large package and want to make sure
       that you don't miss installing newly added files in new upstream

       Remember to test different kinds of builds (dpkg-buildpackage
       -A/-B/...) as you may experience varying results when only a subset of
       the packages are built.

           List the files that are deliberately not installed in any binary
           package.  Paths listed in this file are ignored by dh_missing.
           However, it is not a method to exclude files from being installed
           by any of the debhelper tool.  If you want a tool to not install a
           given file, please use its --exclude option (where available).

           dh_missing will expand wildcards in this file (since debhelper
           11.1).  Wildcards without matches will be ignored.

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

           Warn on stderr about source files not installed to somewhere.

           Note that many dh-tools acting on a path will mark the path as
           installed even if it has been excluded via -X or --exclude.  This
           is also seen when a dh-tool is acting on a directory and exclusion
           is used to ignore some files in the directory.  In either case,
           this will make dh_missing silently assume the excluded files have
           been handled.

           This is the default in compat 12 and later.

           This option is like --list-missing, except if a file was missed, it
           will not only list the missing files, but also fail with a nonzero
           exit code.


       This program is a part of debhelper.
