NAME

neon-config - script providing information about installed copy of neon library  

SYNOPSIS

neon-config [--prefix] [--cflags | --libs | --la-file | --support feature | --help | --version]

 

DESCRIPTION

The neon-config script provides information about an installed copy of the neon library. The --cflags and --libs options instruct how to compile and link an application against the library; the --version and --support options can help determine whether the library meets the applications requirements.

 

OPTIONS

--cflags
Print the flags which should be passed to the C compiler when compiling object files, when the object files use neon header files.

--libs
Print the flags which should be passed to the linker when linking an application which uses the neon library

--la-file
Print the location of the libtool library script, libneon.la, which can be used to link against neon by applications using libtool.

--version
Print the version of the library

--prefix dir
If dir is given; relocate output of --cflags and --libs as if neon was installed in given prefix directory. Otherwise, print the installation prefix of the library.

--support feature
The script exits with success if feature is supported by the library.

--help
Print help message; includes list of known features and whether they are supported or not.

 

EXAMPLE

Below is a Makefile fragment which could be used to build an application against an installed neon library, when the neon-config script can be found in $PATH.

CFLAGS = `neon-config --cflags`
LIBS = `neon-config --libs`
OBJECTS = myapp.o
TARGET = myapp

$(TARGET): $(OBJECTS)
        $(CC) $(LDFLAGS) -o $(TARGET) $(OBJECTS) $(LIBS)

myapp.o: myapp.c
        $(CC) $(CFLAGS) -c myapp.c -o myapp.o
