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
