DESCRIPTION

gimptool-2.0 is a tool that can, among other things, build plug-ins or scripts and install them if they are distributed in one source file.

gimptool-2.0 can also be used by programs that need to know what libraries and include-paths GIMP was compiled with. gimptool-2.0 uses pkg-config for this task. For use in Makefiles, it is recommended that you use pkg-config directly instead of calling gimptool-2.0.
