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. Cur-
	      rently 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 partic-
	      ular 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 upper-
	      case 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. Note that Fedora/RHEL libcurl pack-
	      ages do not provide any static libraries, thus cannot be linked 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` -o example example.c `curl-config --libs`
