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'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's  POSIX API wrapper library (this may include some -I options,
                 but is blank on many systems).
