Name

pcre2-config — program to return PCRE2 configuration

Synopsis

pcre2-config [--prefix] [--exec-prefix] [--version]

[--libs8] [−−libs16] [−−libs32] [−−libs−posix]

[--cflags] [−−cflags−posix]

DESCRIPTION

pcre2-config returns the configuration of the installed PCRE2 libraries and the options required to compile a program to use them. Some of the options apply only to the 8-bit, or 16-bit, or 32-bit libraries, respectively, and are not available for libraries that have not been built. If an unavailable option is encountered, the usage information is output.

OPTIONS

−−prefix

Writes the directory prefix used in the PCRE2 installation for architecture independent files (/usr on many systems, /usr/local on some systems) to the standard output.

−−exec−prefix

Writes the directory prefix used in the PCRE2 installation for architecture dependent files (normally the same as −−prefix) to the standard output.

−−version

Writes the version number of the installed PCRE2 libraries to the standard output.

−−libs8

Writes to the standard output the command line options required to link with the 8-bit PCRE2 library (−lpcre2−8 on many systems).

−−libs16

Writes to the standard output the command line options required to link with the 16-bit PCRE2 library (−lpcre2−16 on many systems).

−−libs32

Writes to the standard output the command line options required to link with the 32-bit PCRE2 library (−lpcre2−32 on many systems).

−−libs-posix

Writes to the standard output the command line options required to link with PCRE2_zsingle_quotesz_s POSIX API wrapper library (−lpcre2−posix −lpcre2−8 on many systems).

−−cflags

Writes to the standard output the command line options required to compile files that use PCRE2 (this may include some −I options, but is blank on many systems).

−−cflags-posix

Writes to the standard output the command line options required to compile files that use PCRE2_zsingle_quotesz_s POSIX API wrapper library (this may include some −I options, but is blank on many systems).
