xml2-config - Man Page

script to get information about the installed version of libxml2


xml2-config [--prefix[=DIR]] [--libs] [--cflags] [--version] [--help]


xml2-config is a tool that is used to determine the compile and linker flags that should be used to compile and link programs that use libxml2.


xml2-config accepts the following options:


Print the currently installed version of libxml2 on the standard output.


Print the linker flags that are necessary to link a libxml2 program. Add --dynamic after --libs to print only shared library linking information.


Print the compiler flags that are necessary to compile a libxml2 program.


If specified, use PREFIX instead of the installation prefix that libxml2 was built with when computing the output for the --cflags and --libs options. This option must be specified before any --libs or --cflags options.
