       mysql_config - get compile options for compiling clients


       mysql_config options


       mysql_config provides you with useful information for compiling your MariaDB client and
       connecting it to MariaDB.

       mysql_config supports the following options.

       ·   --cflags

           Compiler flags to find include files and critical compiler flags and defines used when
           compiling the libmysqlclient library. The options returned are tied to the specific
           compiler that was used when the library was created and might clash with the settings
           for your own compiler. Use --include for more portable options that contain only
           include paths.

       ·   --include

           Compiler options to find MariaDB include files.

       ·   --libmysqld-libs, --embedded

           Libraries and options required to link with the MariaDB embedded server.

       ·   --libs

           Libraries and options required to link with the MariaDB client library.

       ·   --libs_r

           Libraries and options required to link with the thread-safe MariaDB client library.

       ·   --plugindir

           The default plugin directory path name, defined when configuring MariaDB.

       ·   --port

           The default TCP/IP port number, defined when configuring MariaDB.

       ·   --socket

           The default Unix socket file, defined when configuring MariaDB.

       ·   --variable=VAR

           Path to MariaDB include, library and plugin directories. VAR is one of
           `pkgincludedir`, `pkglibdir` and `plugindir`, respectively.

       ·   --version

           Version number for the MariaDB distribution.

       If you invoke mysql_config with no options, it displays a list of all options that it
       supports, and their values:

           shell> mysql_config
           Usage: /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config [options]
             --cflags         [-I/usr/local/mysql/include/mysql -mcpu=pentiumpro]
             --include        [-I/usr/local/mysql/include/mysql]
             --libs           [-L/usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient -lz
                               -lcrypt -lnsl -lm -L/usr/lib -lssl -lcrypto]
             --libs_r         [-L/usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient_r
                               -lpthread -lz -lcrypt -lnsl -lm -lpthread]
             --socket         [/tmp/mysql.sock]
             --port           [3306]
             --version        [4.0.16]
             --libmysqld-libs [-L/usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql -lmysqld -lpthread -lz
                               -lcrypt -lnsl -lm -lpthread -lrt]

       You can use mysql_config within a command line to include the value that it displays for a
       particular option. For example, to compile a MariaDB client program, use mysql_config as

           shell> CFG=/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config
           shell> sh -c "gcc -o progname `$CFG --include` progname.c `$CFG --libs`"

       When you use mysql_config this way, be sure to invoke it within backtick (“`”) characters.
       That tells the shell to execute it and substitute its output into the surrounding command.
