mm-config — OSSP mm library configuration/build utility

Version

OSSP mm 1.4.1 (10-Aug-2006)

Synopsis

mm-config [--help] [--version] [--cflags] [--ldflags] [--libs]

Description

The mm-config program is a little helper utility for easy configuring and building applications based on the mm(3) library. It can be used to query the C compiler and linker flags which are required to correctly compile and link the application against the mm(3) library.

Options

mm-config accepts the following options:

--help
Prints the short usage information.
--version
Prints the version number and date of the installed mm(3) library.
--cflags
Prints the C compiler flags which are needed to compile the mm(3)-based application. The output is usually added to the "CFLAGS" variable of the applications "Makefile".
--ldflags
Prints the linker flags ("-L") which are needed to link the application with the mm(3) library. The output is usually added to the "LDFLAGS" variable of the applications "Makefile".
--libs
Prints the library flags ("-l") which are needed to link the application with the mm(3) library. The output is usually added to the "LIBS" variable of the applications "Makefile".

Example

CC=cc
CFLAGS=-O `mm-config --cflags`
LDFLAGS=`mm-config --ldflags`
LIBS=-lm `mm-config --libs`
all: foo
foo: foo.o
    $(CC) $(LDFLAGS) -o foo foo.o $(LIBS)
foo.o: foo.c
    $(CC) $(CFLAGS) -c foo.c
