PCAP-CONFIG(1)           General Commands Manual          PCAP-CONFIG(1)

NAME         top

       pcap-config - write libpcap compiler and linker flags to standard
       output

SYNOPSIS         top

       pcap-config [ --static ] [ --cflags | --libs | --additional-libs
       ]

DESCRIPTION         top

       When run with the --cflags option, pcap-config writes to the
       standard output the -I compiler flags required to include
       libpcap's header files.  When run with the --libs option, pcap-
       config writes to the standard output the -L and -l linker flags
       required to link with libpcap, including -l flags for libraries
       required by libpcap.  When run with the --additional-libs option,
       pcap-config writes to the standard output the -L and -l flags for
       libraries required by libpcap, but not the -lpcap flag to link
       with libpcap itself.

       By default, it writes flags appropriate for compiling with a
       dynamically-linked version of libpcap; the --static flag causes
       it to write flags appropriate for compiling with a statically-
       linked version of libpcap.
