Version

Synopsis

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

Description

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

Options

uuid-config accepts the following options:

--help
Prints the short usage information.
--version
Prints the version number and date of the installed uuid(3) library.
--all
Forces the output of all flags, that is, including extra flags which are not OSSP uuid specific.
--prefix
Prints the installation prefix of architecture independent files
--exec-prefix
Prints the installation prefix of architecture dependent files.
--bindir
Prints the installation directory of binaries.
--libdir
Prints the installation directory of libraries.
--includedir
Prints the installation directory of include headers.
--mandir
Prints the installation directory of manual pages.
--datadir
Prints the installation directory of shared data.
--acdir
Prints the installation directory of autoconf data.
--cflags
Prints the C compiler flags which are needed to compile the uuid(3)-based application. The output is usually added to the CFLAGS uuidiable of the applications Makefile.
--ldflags
Prints the linker flags (-L) which are needed to link the application with the uuid(3) library. The output is usually added to the LDFLAGS uuidiable of the applications Makefile.
--libs
Prints the library flags (-l) which are needed to link the application with the C uuid(3) library. The output is usually added to the LIBS uuidiable of the applications Makefile.

Example

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