libIDL-config-2 - helper script for building with libIDL-2
libIDL-config-2 [ --libs ] [ --cflags ] [ --prefix=dir ] [ --exec-prefix=dir ] libIDL-config-2 [ --version ] [ --help ]
libIDL-config-2 is a tool that is used to determine the compiler and linker flags that should be used to compile and link programs that use the libIDL-2 library. This script seems to be semi-obsolete, and may not work correctly on non-Debian systems; you should probably use "pkg-config libIDL-2.0" instead. In most cases, you will use one (or both) of the options --cflags or --libs (depending on whether you are compiling or linking.
libIDL-config-2 accepts the following options: --version Print the currently installed version of library on the standard output. --help Print a usage summary. --libs Print the linker flags that are necessary to link with the specified library. --cflags Print the compiler flags that are necessary to compile a program using the specified library. --prefix=PREFIX If specified, use PREFIX instead of the installation prefix that library was built with when computing the output for the --cflags and --libs options. This option is also used for the exec prefix if --exec-prefix was not specified. This option must be specified before any --libs or --cflags options. --exec-prefix=PREFIX If specified, use PREFIX instead of the installation exec prefix that library was built with when computing the output for the --cflags and --libs options. This option must be specified before any --libs or --cflags options.
