NAME

pcre-config - program to return PCRE configuration  

SYNOPSIS

pcre-config [--prefix] [--exec-prefix] [--version] [--libs] [--libs-posix] [--cflags] [--cflags-posix]

 

DESCRIPTION

pcre-config returns the configuration of the installed PCRE libraries: the options required to compile a program to use them.

 

OPTIONS

--prefix
Writes the directory prefix used in the PCRE installation for architecture independent files (e.g. /usr) to standard output.
--exec-prefix
Writes the directory prefix used in the PCRE installation for architecture dependent files (normally the same as --prefix) to standard output.
--version
Writes the version of PCRE installed to standard output.
--libs
Writes to standard output the command line options required to link with PCRE (e.g. -lpcre).
--libs-posix
Writes to standard output the command line options required to link with the PCRE POSIX emulation library (e.g. -lpcreposix -lpcre).
--cflags
Writes to standard output the command line options required to compile files that use PCRE (this often includes some -I options, but is blank on debian systems).
--cflags-posix
Writes to standard output the command line options required to compile files that use the PCRE POSIX emulation library (this often includes some -I options, but is blank on debian systems). Suppress printing of filenames when searching multiple files.
