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.
