cherokee-config — script to get information about the installed version of Cherokee


cherokee-config [--prefix=<DIR>] [--libs] [--cflags] [--version] [--help]


cherokee-config is a tool that is used to determine the compile and linker flags that should be used to compile and link programs that use Cherokee.


cherokee-config accepts the following options:

Print the currently installed version of CHEROKEE on the standard output.
Print the linker flags that are necessary to link a CHEROKEE program.
Print the compiler flags that are necessary to compile a CHEROKEE program
If specified, use PREFIX instead of the installation prefix that CHEROKEE was built with when computing the output for the --cflags and --libs options. This option must be specified before any --libs or --cflags options.
