       BuildProgram  -  compile,  link  with  Gnuastro  library and its dependencies, and run a C


       astbuildprog [OPTION...] C-source [ARGUMENTS TO RUN]


       BuildProgram is part of GNU Astronomy Utilities 0.5.  BuildProgram will compile and run  a
       C  program, while automatically linking with libraries that Gnuastro depends on. Hence you
       do not have to worry about explicitly linking with CFITSIO for example if you want to work
       on  a  FITS  file,  or with GSL if you want to use GNU Scientific Library's functions. The
       standard compiler options  of  `-I',  `-L',  and  `-l'  are  also  available  for  further
       customization of the build.

       For  more  information, please run any of the following commands. In particular the second
       contains a very comprehensive explanation of BuildProgram's invocation: expected input(s),
       output(s), and a full description of all the options.

       All options and their values:
              $ astbuildprog -P

       Inputs/Outputs and options:
              $ info astbuildprog

       Full section in manual/book:
              $ info BuildProgram

       Full Gnuastro manual/book:
              $ info gnuastro

       If  you  couldn't find your answer in the manual, you can get direct help from experienced
       Gnuastro users and developers. For more information, please run:

              $ info help-gnuastro
