iodbc-config — script to get information about the installed version of iODBC

Synopsis

iodbc-config [--prefix[=DIR]] [--exec-prefix[=DIR]] [--version] [--cflags] [--libs] [--static-libs] [--libtool-libs] [--odbcini] [--odbcinstini]

Description

iodbc-config is a tool that is used to configure to determine the compiler and linker flags that should be used to compile and link programs that use iODBC.

Options

iodbc-config accepts the following options:

--version

Print the currently installed version of iODBC on the standard output.

--cflags

Print the compiler flags that are necessary to compile an iODBC program.

--libs

Print the linker flags that are necessary to link an iODBC program using dynamic libraries (if supported).

--static-libs

Print the linker flags that are necessary to link an iODBC program using  static libraries.

--libtool-libs

Print the linker flags that are necessary to link an iODBC program in a libtool environment.

--odbcini

Print the path of the system wide odbc.ini file.

--odbcinstini

Print the path of the system wide odbcinst.ini file.

--prefix[=PREFIX]

If specified, use PREFIX instead of the installation prefix that iODBC was built with when computing the output for the --cflags and --libs options. This option is also used for the exec prefix if --exec-prefix was not specified. This option must be specified before any --libs or --cflags options.

If PREFIX is not specified, the --prefix flag shows where iODBC is currently installed.

--exec-prefix=PREFIX

If specified, use PREFIX instead of the installation exec prefix that iODBC was built with when computing the output for the --cflags and --libs options.  This option must be specified before any --libs or --cflags options.

Examples

To compile a program that calls the iODBC API, make sure the iodbc-config program can be found in the PATH environment variable, before using the following Makefile fragment:

    CFLAGS=`iodbc-config --cflags`
    LDLIBS=`iodbc-config --libs`

    iodbctest: iodbctest.c
	    cc $(CFLAGS) -o iodbctest iodbctest.c $(LDLIBS)
