Synopsis

npth-config [--help] [--version] [--all] [--prefix] [--exec-prefix] [--bindir] [--libdir] [--includedir] [--mandir] [--datadir] [--acdir] [--cflags] [--ldflags] [--libs]

Description

The npth-config program is a little helper utility for easy configuring and building applications based on the npth(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 npth(3) library.

Options

npth-config accepts the following options:

--thread

Specify thread module to use.

--prefix

Prints the installation prefix of architecture independent files

--exec-prefix

Prints the installation prefix of architecture dependent files.

--version

Prints the version number and date of the installed npth(3) library. nPth specific.

--api-version

Prints the API version of the installed npth(3) library.

--host

Prints host triplet.

--libs

Prints the library flags ("-l") which are needed to link the application with the npth(3) library. The output is usually added to the "LIBS" variable of the applications "Makefile".

--cflags

Prints the C compiler flags which are needed to compile the npth(3)-based application. The output is usually added to the "CFLAGS" variable of the applications "Makefile".

Example

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