Show version of library

Compares version VERSIONA against version VERSIONB using operator OPERATOR. Both versions must be in dotted format (e.g. 1.0.8) or the special keyword "current". This keyword represents the current used version.

Operator may be "eq" (equal), "ne" (not equal), "gt" (greater than), "ge" (greater than or equal), "lt" (less than) or "le" (less than or equal).

This function is mostly useful to check for minimum required or maximum supported versions of libroar in configure scripts.

Print path NAME. Examples for NAME include prefix-plugins.

List all known paths with corresponding values.

Product string for --path and --list-path.

Provider string for --path and --list-path.

Use universal path for --path and --list-path.

Render the given path. The path can be any absolute path, a path relative to the user's home directory (prefixed with ~/) or a path relative to a path as used by --path (prefixed with $ and path name).

Show linker flags (-lxxx) needed to link library

Show compiler flags needed to link library
