sane-config — get information about the installed version of libsane
sane-config [--prefix] [--exec-prefix] [--libs] [--cflags] [--ldflags] [--version] [--help [OPTION]]
sane-config is a tool that is used to determine the compiler and linker flags that should be used to compile and link SANE frontends to a SANE backend library (libsane).
sane-config accepts the following options (you can't use more than one option at the same time):
Print the currently installed version of libsane on the standard output.
- --help OPTION
Print a short usage message. If OPTION is specified, help for that option (e.g. --libs) is printed (if available).
Print the additional libraries that are necessary to link a SANE frontend to libsane.
Print the linker flags that are necessary to link a SANE frontend to libsane.
Print the compiler flags that are necessary to compile a SANE frontend.
Print the prefix used during compilation of libsane.
Print the exec-prefix used during compilation of libsane.
