NAME         top

       pcre-config - program to return PCRE configuration

SYNOPSIS         top


       pcre-config [--prefix] [--exec-prefix] [--version] [--libs]
                   [--libs16] [--libs32] [--libs-cpp] [--libs-posix]
                   [--cflags] [--cflags-posix]

DESCRIPTION         top


       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         top


       --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).
