PCRE2-CONFIG(1)		    General Commands Manual	       PCRE2-CONFIG(1)

NAME
       pcre2-config - program to return	PCRE2 configuration

SYNOPSIS

       pcre2-config [--prefix] [--exec-prefix] [--version]
		    [--libs8] [--libs16] [--libs32] [--libs-posix]
		    [--cflags] [--cflags-posix]

DESCRIPTION

       pcre2-config returns the	configuration of the installed PCRE2 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 for  libraries	 that  have  not  been
       built. If an unavailable	option is encountered, the "usage" information
       is output.

OPTIONS

       --prefix	 Writes	the directory prefix used in  the  PCRE2  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  PCRE2  installation
		 for architecture dependent files (normally the	same as	--pre-
		 fix) to the standard output.

       --version Writes	the version number of the installed PCRE2 libraries to
		 the standard output.

       --libs8	 Writes	 to  the  standard output the command line options re-
		 quired	to link	with the 8-bit	PCRE2  library	(-lpcre2-8  on
		 many systems).

       --libs16	 Writes	 to  the  standard output the command line options re-
		 quired	to link	with the 16-bit	PCRE2 library  (-lpcre2-16  on
		 many systems).

       --libs32	 Writes	 to  the  standard output the command line options re-
		 quired	to link	with the 32-bit	PCRE2 library  (-lpcre2-32  on
		 many systems).

       --libs-posix
		 Writes	 to  the  standard output the command line options re-
		 quired	 to  link  with	 PCRE2's  POSIX	 API  wrapper  library
		 (-lpcre2-posix	-lpcre2-8 on many systems).

       --cflags	 Writes	 to  the  standard output the command line options re-
		 quired	to compile files that use PCRE2	(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 PCRE2's  POSIX  API  wrapper
		 library  (this	 may  include some -I options, but is blank on
		 many systems).
