DESCRIPTION
       gimptool is a tool that can, among other things, build plug-ins	or  scripts  and  install
       them if they are distributed in one source file.

       gimptool  can  also be used by programs that need to know what libraries and include-paths
       Gimp was compiled with. This is especially useful in Makefiles.

       On Unix, gimptool is a script. On Windows, it is a program. They should be  more  or  less
       compatible. This manual page describes the Unix script version.

OPTIONS
       gimptool accepts the following options:

       --version
	       Print the currently installed version of Gimp on the standard output.
