The classic greeting, and a good example

The GNU hello program produces a familiar, friendly greeting. It allows non-programmers to use a classic computer science tool which would otherwise be unavailable to them.

Seriously, though: this is an example of how to do a Debian package. It is the Debian version of the GNU Project's `hello world' program (which is itself an example for the GNU Project).

This is the same as the hello package, except it uses debhelper to make the deb. Please see debhelper as to what it is.

Package version:2.7-2
