NAME

       curl-config - Get information about a libcurl installation

SYNOPSIS

       curl-config [options]

DESCRIPTION

       curl-config displays information about the curl and libcurl installation.

OPTIONS

       --ca   Displays the built-in path to the CA cert bundle this libcurl uses.

       --cc   Displays the compiler used to build libcurl.

       --cflags
              Set  of  compiler  options  (CFLAGS)  to use when compiling files that use libcurl.
              Currently that is only the include path to the curl include files.

       --checkfor [version]
              Specify the oldest possible libcurl version string you want, and this  script  will
              return  0  if  the current installation is new enough or it returns 1 and outputs a
              text saying that the current version is not new enough. (Added in 7.15.4)

       --configure
              Displays the arguments given to configure when building curl.

       --feature
              Lists what particular main features the installed libcurl was built  with.  At  the
              time  of  writing,  this  list  may  include  SSL,  KRB4 or IPv6. Do not assume any
              particular order. The keywords will be separated by newlines. There  may  be  none,
              one, or several keywords in the list.

       --help Displays the available options.

       --libs Shows  the  complete set of libs and other linker options you will need in order to
              link your application with libcurl.

       --prefix
              This is the prefix used when libcurl was installed. Libcurl is  then  installed  in
              $prefix/lib  and  its  header files are installed in $prefix/include and so on. The
              prefix is set with "configure --prefix".

       --protocols
              Lists what particular protocols the installed libcurl was built to support. At  the
              time  of writing, this list may include HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, FTPS, FILE, TELNET, LDAP,
              DICT. Do not assume any particular  order.  The  protocols  will  be  listed  using
              uppercase  and  are  separated  by  newlines.  There  may  be none, one, or several
              protocols in the list. (Added in 7.13.0)

       --static-libs
              Shows the complete set of libs and other linker options you will need in  order  to
              link your application with libcurl statically. (Added in 7.17.1)

       --version
              Outputs version information about the installed libcurl.

       --vernum
              Outputs  version  information about the installed libcurl, in numerical mode.  This
              outputs the version number, in hexadecimal, with  8  bits  for  each  part;  major,
              minor,  patch.  So  that  libcurl 7.7.4 would appear as 070704 and libcurl 12.13.14
              would appear as 0c0d0e... Note that the initial zero might be omitted. (This option
              was broken in the 7.15.0 release.)

EXAMPLES

       What linker options do I need when I link with libcurl?

         $ curl-config --libs

       What compiler options do I need when I compile using libcurl functions?

         $ curl-config --cflags

       How do I know if libcurl was built with SSL support?

         $ curl-config --feature | grep SSL

       What's the installed libcurl version?

         $ curl-config --version

       How do I build a single file with a one-line command?

         $ `curl-config --cc --cflags --libs` -o example example.c
