curl-config - Get information about a libcurl installation


       curl-config [options]


       curl-config displays information about a previous curl and
       libcurl installation.


       --ca   Displays  the  built-in  path to the CA cert bundle
              this libcurl uses.

       --cc   Displays the compiler used to build libcurl.

              Set of compiler options (CFLAGS) to use  when  com-
              piling  files  that  use libcurl. Currently that is
              only thw include path to the curl include files.

              Lists what particular main features  the  installed
              libcurl  was  built  with.  At the time of writing,
              this list may include SSL, KRB4  or  IPv6.  Do  not
              assume  any  particular order. The keywords will be
              separated by newlines. There may be  none,  one  or
              several keywords in the list.

       --help Displays the available options.

       --libs Shows  the  complete  set  of libs and other linker
              options you will need in order to link your  appli-
              cation with libcurl.

              This is the prefix used when libcurl was installed.
              Libcurl is then installed in  $prefix/lib  and  its
              header  files  are installed in $prefix/include and
              so on. The prefix is set with "configure --prefix".

              Outputs  version  information  about  the installed

              Outputs version  information  about  the  installed
              libcurl,  in numerical mode.  This outputs the ver-
              sion number, in hexadecimal, with 8 bits  for  each
              part;  major,  minor,  patch. So that libcurl 7.7.4
              would appear as 070704 and libcurl  12.13.14  would
              appear as 0c0d0e...

       What linker options do I need when I link with libcurl?

         $ curl-config --libs

       What  compiler  options  do  I  need  when I compile using
       libcurl functions?

         $ curl-config --cflags

       How do I know if libcurl was built with SSL support?

         $ curl-config --feature | grep SSL

       What's the installed libcurl version?

         $ curl-config --version

       How do I build a single file with a one-line command?

         $ `curl-config --cc --cflags --libs`  -o  example  exam-
