NAME

       vapigen - generate a Vala API

SYNOPSIS

       vapigen SOURCE PKGBASE [OPTION]... [FILE]...

DESCRIPTION

       vapigen  is  a  utility  which generates Vala API (VAPI) files from GI files, which may be
       generated using the vala-gen-introspect(1) utility.

EXAMPLES

       After compilation, the following command generates a GI for pango:
              vala-gen-introspect pango packages/pango

       This can then be converted to a Vala API as follows:
              vapigen --pkg cairo --vapidir . --library pango packages/pango/pango.gi
