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.
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. --ldflags Reports the necessary linker options. --libs Reports the necessary libraries to link to. --serverbin Reports the default CUPS binary directory, where filters and 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).
Show the currently installed version of CUPS: cups-config --version Compile a simple one-file CUPS filter: cc `cups-config --cflags --ldflags` -o filter filter.c \ `cups-config --libs`
The following options are deprecated but continue to work for backwards compatibility: --image Formerly used to add the CUPS imaging library to the list of libraries.
