DESCRIPTION         top

       The cups-config command allows application developers to determine
       the necessary command-line options for the compiler and linker, as
       well as the installation directories for filters, configuration
       files, and drivers.  All values are reported to the standard output.

OPTIONS         top

       The cups-config command accepts the following command-line options:

       --api-version
            Reports the current API version (major.minor).

       --build
            Reports a system-specific build number.

       --cflags
            Reports the necessary compiler options.

       --datadir
            Reports the default CUPS data directory.

       --help
            Reports the program usage message.

       --image
            When used with --libs, adds the CUPS imaging library to the list
            of libraries.

       --ldflags
            Reports the necessary linker options.

       --libs
            Reports the necessary libraries to link to.

       --serverbin

            backends are stored.

       --serverroot
            Reports the default CUPS configuration file directory.

       --static
            When used with --libs, reports the static libraries instead of
            the default (shared) libraries.

       --version
            Reports the full version number of the CUPS installation
            (major.minor.patch).
