B<dh_installman> is a debhelper program that handles installing
man pages into the correct locations in package build directories. You tell
-it what man pages go in your packages, and it figures out where to
-install them based on the section field in their B<.TH> line. If you have a
-properly formatted B<.TH> line, your man page will be installed into the right
-directory, with the right name (this includes proper handling of pages
-with a subsection, like B<3perl>, which are placed in F<man3>, and given an
-extension of F<.3perl>). If your B<.TH> line is incorrect or missing, the program
-may guess wrong based on the file extension.

It also supports translated man pages, by looking for extensions
like F<.ll.8> and F<.ll_LL.8>, or by use of the B<--language> switch.
If B<dh_installman> seems to install a man page into the wrong section or with
the wrong extension, this is because the man page has the wrong section
-listed in its B<.TH> line. Edit the man page and correct the section, and
-B<dh_installman> will follow suit. See L<man(7)> for details about the B<.TH>
-section. If B<dh_installman> seems to install a man page into a directory

+B<dh_installman> seems to install a man page into a directory
like F</usr/share/man/pl/man1/>, that is because your program has a
name like F<foo.pl>, and B<dh_installman> assumes that means it is translated
into Polish. Use B<--language=C> to avoid this.
