PCRE-CONFIG(1)		    General Commands Manual		PCRE-CONFIG(1)

NAME
       pcre-config - program to	return PCRE configuration

SYNOPSIS
       pcre-config [--prefix] [--exec-prefix] [--version] [--libs]
		   [--libs16] [--libs32] [--libs-cpp] [--libs-posix]
		   [--cflags] [--cflags-posix]

DESCRIPTION
       pcre-config  returns  the configuration of the installed	PCRE libraries
       and the options required	to compile a program to	use them. Some of  the
       options	apply  only  to	the 8-bit, or 16-bit, or 32-bit	libraries, re-
       spectively, and are not available if only one of	 those	libraries  has
       been built. If an unavailable option is encountered, the	"usage"	infor-
       mation is output.

OPTIONS
       --prefix	 Writes	the directory prefix used in the PCRE installation for
		 architecture	independent   files  (/usr  on	many  systems,
		 /usr/local on some systems) to	the standard output.

       --exec-prefix
		 Writes	the directory prefix used in the PCRE installation for
		 architecture  dependent files (normally the same as --prefix)
		 to the	standard output.

       --version Writes	the version number of the installed PCRE libraries  to
		 the standard output.

       --libs	 Writes	 to  the  standard output the command line options re-
		 quired	to link	with the 8-bit PCRE library  (-lpcre  on  many
		 systems).

       --libs16	 Writes	 to  the  standard output the command line options re-
		 quired	to link	with the 16-bit	PCRE library (-lpcre16 on many
		 systems).

       --libs32	 Writes	 to  the  standard output the command line options re-
		 quired	to link	with the 32-bit	PCRE library (-lpcre32 on many
		 systems).

       --libs-cpp
		 Writes	 to  the  standard output the command line options re-
		 quired	to link	with PCRE's  C++  wrapper  library  (-lpcrecpp
		 -lpcre	on many	systems).

       --libs-posix
		 Writes	 to  the  standard output the command line options re-
		 quired	 to  link  with	 PCRE's	 POSIX	API  wrapper   library
		 (-lpcreposix -lpcre on	many systems).

       --cflags	 Writes	 to  the  standard output the command line options re-
		 quired	to compile files that use PCRE (this may include  some
		 -I options, but is blank on many systems).

       --cflags-posix
		 Writes	 to  the  standard output the command line options re-
		 quired	to compile files that use PCRE's POSIX API wrapper li-
		 brary (this may include some -I options, but is blank on many
		 systems).
