neon-config — script providing information about installed copy of neon library

Synopsis

neon-config [--prefix] [[--cflags] | [--libs] | [--la-file] | [--support feature] | [--help] | [--version]]

Description

The neon-config script provides information about an installed copy of the neon library. The --cflags and --libs options instruct how to compile and link an application against the library; the --version and --support options can help determine whether the library meets the applications requirements.

Options

--cflags
Print the flags which should be passed to the C compiler when compiling object files, when the object files use neon header files.
--libs
Print the flags which should be passed to the linker when linking an application which uses the neon library
--la-file
Print the location of the libtool library script, libneon.la, which can be used to link against neon by applications using libtool.
--version
Print the version of the library
--prefix dir
If dir is given; relocate output of --cflags and --libs as if neon was installed in given prefix directory. Otherwise, print the installation prefix of the library.
--support feature
The script exits with success if feature is supported by the library.
--help
Print help message; includes list of known features and whether they are supported or not.

Example

Below is a Makefile fragment which could be used to build an application against an installed neon library, when the neon-config script can be found in $PATH.

CFLAGS = `neon-config --cflags`
LIBS = `neon-config --libs`
OBJECTS = myapp.o
TARGET = myapp

$(TARGET): $(OBJECTS)
	$(CC) $(LDFLAGS) -o $(TARGET) $(OBJECTS) $(LIBS)

myapp.o: myapp.c
	$(CC) $(CFLAGS) -c myapp.c -o myapp.o
