gtk-config (1)





NAME

       gtk-config  -  script to get information about the installed version of
       GTK+


SYNOPSIS

       gtk-config [--prefix[=DIR]] [--exec-prefix[=DIR]] [--version]  [--libs]
       [--cflags]


DESCRIPTION

       gtk-config  is  a  tool that is used to configure to determine the com-
       piler and linker flags that should be used to compile and link programs
       that  use  GTK+.  It  is also used internally to the .m4 macros for GNU
       autoconf that are included with GTK+.


OPTIONS

       gtk-config accepts the following options:

       --version
               Print the currently installed version of GTK+ on  the  standard
               output.

       --libs  Print  the  linker flags that are necessary to link a GTK+ pro-
               gram.

       --cflags
               Print the compiler flags that are necessary to compile  a  GTK+
               program.

       --prefix=PREFIX
               If  specified,  use  PREFIX  instead of the installation prefix
               that GTK+ was built with when  computing  the  output  for  the
               --cflags  and  --libs options. This option is also used for the
               exec prefix if --exec-prefix was  not  specified.  This  option
               must be specified before any --libs or --cflags options.

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