NAME

     file.personality — pkgconf cross-compile personality file format

DESCRIPTION

     pkgconf cross-compile personality files provide a useful mechanism for storing various
     information about system toolchains.  Information stored by .personality files include
     information about paths used by a cross-compile toolchain, such as the sysroot directory and
     default include and library paths.  pkgconf uses this information to determine what
     information is necessary to use libraries.

   FILE SYNTAX
     The .personality file follows a format inspired by RFC822.  Comments are prefixed by a pound
     sign, hash sign or octothorpe (#), and variable assignment is similar to POSIX shell.
     Properties are defined using RFC822-style stanzas.

   PROPERTIES
     Properties are set using RFC822-style stanzas which consist of a keyword, followed by a
     colon (:) and then the value the property should be set to.  Variable substitution is always
     performed regardless of property type.

     There are two types of property:

     Literal
             The property will be set to the text of the value.

     Fragment List
             The property will be set to a list of fragments parsed from the text.  The input
             text must be in a format that is suitable for passing to a POSIX shell without any
             shell expansions after variable substitution has been done.

   PROPERTY KEYWORDS
     Triplet
             The triplet used by the cross-compile toolchain.  (mandatory; literal)

     SysrootDir
             The directory used by the system root of the cross-compile toolchain.  (mandatory;
             literal)

     DefaultSearchPaths
             A list of directories to look for pc(5) files in.  (mandatory; fragment list)

     SystemIncludePaths
             A list of directories that are included by default in the search path for include
             files.  (mandatory; fragment list)

     SystemLibraryPaths
             A list of directories that are included by default in the search path for libraries.
             (mandatory; fragment list)

EXAMPLES

     An example .personality file:

     # This is a comment
     Triplet: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
     SysrootDir: /home/kaniini/sysroot/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
     DefaultSearchPaths: /home/kaniini/sysroot/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/lib/pkgconfig \
       /home/kaniini/sysroot/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/share/pkgconfig
     SystemIncludePaths: /home/kaniini/sysroot/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/include
     SystemLibraryPaths: /home/kaniini/sysroot/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/lib
