NAME

       allegro-config - script to get information about the installed version of Allegro

SYNOPSIS

       allegro-config  [--prefix[=DIR]]  [--exec-prefix[=DIR]]  [--version]  [--libs]  [--cflags]
       [--static] [--shared] [--env] [release|debug|profile]

DESCRIPTION

       allegro-config is a tool that is used to configure to determine the  compiler  and  linker
       flags that should be used to compile and link programs that use the Allegro library. It is
       intended to be used on Unix systems instead of the simple "-lalleg" call.

EXAMPLE

       gcc -o mygame mygame.o `allegro-config --libs`

       allegro-config will insert arguments needed to link into the command line.

OPTIONS

       allegro-config accepts the following options:

       --version
               Print the currently installed version of Allegro on the standard output.

       --libs  Print the linker flags that are necessary to link an Allegro program.

       --cflags
               Print the compiler flags that are necessary to compile an Allegro program.

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

       --static
               Like  --libs,  but always print the linker flags needed to get a statically linked
               executable.

       --shared
               Like --libs, but always print the linker flags needed to get an executable  linked
               against shared libs.

       --env   Print some needed environment variables in the way needed in shell scripts. Output
               may be loaded into your environment using

               BASH#> eval `allegro-config --env`

       release This will use the optimized Allegro library which you  should  use  when  you  are
               compiling for a release.

       debug   This  will  add extra debug info into your programs, useful to find out where your
               program crashed or simply to debug it (names  of  functions  are  seen).  You  may
               choose this option while developing a program.

       profile This  may  be used when you want to profile your program - i.e. measure the speeds
               of various function calls.
