       curl-config - Get information about a libcurl installation

       curl-config [options]

       curl-config displays information about a previous curl and libcurl installation.

       --cc   Displays the compiler used to build libcurl.

	      Set of compiler options (CFLAGS) to use when compiling files that use libcurl. Cur-
	      rently that is only thw include path to the curl include files.

	      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.

	      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".

	      Outputs version information about the installed libcurl.

	      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...

       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 --libs` -o example example.c
