NAME¶caca-config - script to get information about the installed version of libcaca
SYNOPSIS¶caca-config [ --prefix= DIR] [ --exec-prefix= DIR] [ --version ] [ --libs ] [ --cflags ]
DESCRIPTION¶caca-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.
The use of caca-config is deprecated. The more generic tool pkg-config should be used instead.
- 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.
