deb-conffiles(5)                  dpkg suite                  deb-conffiles(5)

NAME
       deb-conffiles - package conffiles

SYNOPSIS
       conffiles

DESCRIPTION
       A  package declares its list of conffiles by including a conffiles file
       in its control archive (i.e. DEBIAN/conffiles during package creation).

       This file contains a list of files,  one  per  line.   They  should  be
       listed  as  absolute pathnames, and should exist in the binary package,
       otherwise dpkg(1) will ignore them  (although  by  default  dpkg-deb(1)
       will  refuse  to build such binary packages).  Trailing whitespace will
       be trimmed, and empty lines will be ignored.

EXAMPLE
       /etc/alternatives/README
       /etc/cron.daily/dpkg
       /etc/dpkg/dpkg.cfg
       /etc/logrotate.d/dpkg

SEE ALSO
       dpkg-deb(1), dpkg(1).
