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
       /usr/local/etc/alternatives/README
       /usr/local/etc/cron.daily/dpkg
       /usr/local/etc/dpkg/dpkg.cfg
       /usr/local/etc/logrotate.d/dpkg

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