get-wutil-flags man page

get-wutil-flags ā€” output libwutil compiler and linker flags (deprecated)


pkg-config WUtil --cflags
pkg-config WUtil --libs


get-wutil-flags used to provide the compilation and link flags for programs that use the Wutil library, before pkg-config became the universal way to handle these developer configurations. The script is now deprecated and you should use instead:

pkg-config WUtil --cflags

to get the flags for the compiler

pkg-config WUtil --libs

to get the flags for the linker

Important Note

As with every deprecated stuff, the script get-wutil-flags will be removed soon, so you should update your script quickly while you know about it.


get-wutil-flags is part of Window Maker, which was written by Alfredo K. Kojima <> and Dan Pascu <>, with contributions from many people around the Internet.

This man page was written by Frederik Schueler <> for the Debian GNU/Linux system (but may be used by others).
