dpkg -L option seems to return files that I don't have


None of the libcurl4 examples installed on my debian system. Can someone clarify why I don't have files that "dpkg -L" says I have? Maybe I installed something incorrectly using apt-get install.

I'm confused because it lists tons of files like "/usr/share/doc/libcurl4-gnutls-dev/examples/getinfo.c" that don't exist on my system.

Thanks,
Craig

That would be my first thought. You can verify your install, and/or remove the package and install it again.
