NAME
       curl-config - Get information about a libcurl installation

SYNOPSIS
       curl-config [options]

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

OPTIONS
       --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 thw include path to the curl include files.

       --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".

       --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...

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 --libs` -o example example.c
