       mysql_config - get compile options for compiling clients

       mysql_config options

       mysql_config provides you with useful information for compiling your MySQL client and
       connecting it to MySQL.

       mysql_config supports the following options.

       o   --cflags

	   Compiler flags to find include files and critical compiler flags and defines used when
	   compiling the libmysqlclient library. The options returned are tied to the specific
	   compiler that was used when the library was created and might clash with the settings
	   for your own compiler. Use --include for more portable options that contain only
	   include paths.

       o   --include

	   Compiler options to find MySQL include files.

       o   --libmysqld-libs, --embedded

	   Libraries and options required to link with the MySQL embedded server.

       o   --libs

	   Libraries and options required to link with the MySQL client library.

       o   --libs_r

	   Libraries and options required to link with the thread-safe MySQL client library.

       o   --plugindir

	   The default plugin directory path name, defined when configuring MySQL. This option
	   was added in MySQL 5.1.24.

       o   --port

	   The default TCP/IP port number, defined when configuring MySQL.

       o   --socket

	   The default Unix socket file, defined when configuring MySQL.

       o   --variable=VAR

	   Path to MySQL include, library and plugin directories. VAR is one of `pkgincludedir`,
	   `pkglibdir` and `plugindir`, respectively.

       o   --version

	   Version number for the MySQL distribution.

       If you invoke mysql_config with no options, it displays a list of all options that it
       supports, and their values:

	   shell> mysql_config
	   Usage: /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config [options]
	     --cflags	      [-I/usr/local/mysql/include/mysql -mcpu=pentiumpro]
	     --include	      [-I/usr/local/mysql/include/mysql]
	     --libs	      [-L/usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient -lz
			       -lcrypt -lnsl -lm -L/usr/lib -lssl -lcrypto]
	     --libs_r	      [-L/usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient_r
			       -lpthread -lz -lcrypt -lnsl -lm -lpthread]
	     --socket	      [/tmp/mysql.sock]
	     --port	      [3306]
	     --version	      [4.0.16]
	     --libmysqld-libs [-L/usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql -lmysqld -lpthread -lz
			       -lcrypt -lnsl -lm -lpthread -lrt]

       You can use mysql_config within a command line to include the value that it displays for a
       particular option. For example, to compile a MySQL client program, use mysql_config as

	   shell> CFG=/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config
	   shell> sh -c "gcc -o progname `$CFG --include` progname.c `$CFG --libs`"

       When you use mysql_config this way, be sure to invoke it within backtick ("`") characters.
       That tells the shell to execute it and substitute its output into the surrounding command.
