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.

OPTIONS

gimptool-2.0 accepts the following options:

Print the currently installed version of GIMP on the standard output.
Print out the help blurb, showing commonly used commandline options.
Run quietly without echoing any of the build commands.
Run silently without echoing any of the build commands. Same as --quiet.
Test mode. Print the commands but don't actually execute them. Useful for making dry runs for testing.
Test mode. Print the commands but don't actually execute them. Same as -n.
Test mode. Print the commands but don't actually execute them. Same as -n.
Test mode. Print the commands but don't actually execute them. Same as -n.

If specified, use PREFIX instead of the installation prefix that GIMP 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 --libs or --cflags options.

ENVIRONMENT

to get the name of the desired C compiler.
to get the preferred flags to pass to the C compiler for plug-in building.
to get the preferred flags for passing to the linker.
for passing extra libs that may be needed in the build process. For example, LIBS=-lintl .
to get the location of the pkg-config program that is used to determine details about your glib, pango, gtk+ and gimp installation.
