NAMEcaca-config - script to get information about the installed version of libcaca
SYNOPSIScaca-config [ --prefix= DIR] [ --exec-prefix= DIR] [ --version ] [ --libs ] [ --cflags ]
DESCRIPTIONcaca-config is a tool that is used to configure and determine the compiler and linker flags that should be used to compile and link progams, libraries, and plugins that use libcaca.
- Print the compiler flags that are necessary to compile a program or library that uses libcaca.
- If specified, use DIR instead of the installation exec prefix that libcaca was build with when computing the output for the --cflags and --libs options. This option must be specified before any of the --cflags and --libs options.
- Print the linker flags that are necessary to link a program or library that uses libcaca.
- If specified, use PREFIX instead of the installation prefix that libcaca was built with when computing the output for the --cflags and --libs options. This option is also used for the exec prefix if --exec-prefix was not specified. This option must be specified before any of the --cflags and --libs options.
- Prints the currently installed version of libcaca on standard output.
- gcc -o main.o $(caca-config --cflags) -c main.c
- is how you might use caca-config to compile a C source file for an executable program.
- gcc -o my_app $(caca-config --libs) main.o util.o
- is how you might use caca-config to link compiled objects into an executable program.
