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, respectively, and are not available if only one of those libraries has been built. If an unavailable option is encountered, the "usage" information 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 required to link with the 8-bit PCRE library (-lpcre on many systems).

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

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

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

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

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