emgrip-build(1) build wrapper script for Emdebian Grip


emgrip-build [[--debuild]] [[--n] | [--dry-run]] [[--V] | [--vendor]] [[DPKG-OPTIONS]]
emgrip-build [[-?] | [-h] | [--help]]


emgrip-build is a simple wrapper for dpkg-buildpackage that runs the built package through emgrip. This results in both types of packages existing in the parent directory.


Only print the commands that would be executed, do not build the package.


Builds the package using debuild instead of using dpkg-buildpackage directly.


DEB_VENDOR support. The default vendor is emdebian-grip. Same effect can also be achieved using the DEB_VENDOR environment variable.

If the named vendor cannot be parsed by dpkg-vendor or if the Grip-Build-Option and Vendor-Namevariables are not set for that vendor, emgrip-build exits.


Any unrecognised options are passed directly to dpkg-buildpackage, there is no need for --.
