root-config - ROOT utility for your Makefiles SYNOPSIS
root-config [options] DESCRIPTION
Put lines like CFLAGS = $(shell root-config --cflags) LIBS = $(shell root-config --libs) GLIBS = $(shell root-config --glibs) %Cint.cxx:Include.h LinkDef.h rootcint -f $@ -c $^ in you Makefile. You may also find the automake(1), autoconf(1), and libtool(1) macro file /usr/share/aclocal/root.m4 useful. If that macro file isn't installed where Iaclocal will find it, copy the contents to your local acinclude.m4 file. In the directories you use ROOT libraries, have in your file: lib_LTLIBRARIES = pkginclude_HEADERS = Foo.h noinst_HEADERS = FooCint.h libFoo_la_SOURCES = Foo.cxx FooCint.cxx libFoo_la_LDFLAGS = -version-info 1:0 -R @ROOTLIBDIR@ libFoo_la_LDADD = -lCore -lCint @ROOTAUXLIBS@ BUILT_SOURCES = FooCint.cxx FooCint.h AM_CPPFLAGS = -I@ROOTINCDIR@ AM_LDFLAGS = -L@ROOTLIBDIR@ CLEANFILES = *Cint.cxx *Cint.h *~ core %Cint.cxx %Cint.h:Include.h LinkDef.h @ROOTCINT@ -f $*Cint.cxx -c $(INCLUDES) $(AM_CPPFLAGS) $^ where you should substitute Foo with whatever, and list the appropriate source files in the _SOURCES variable. In you file, put: AC_PROG_CC AC_PROG_CXX ROOT_PATH AM_PROG_LIBTOOL along with any other macros you may need. Note that the ROOT_PATH macro takes three optional arguments: the minimal ROOT version to use, action if ROOT is found, and action if ROOT isn't found. Some examples are ROOT_PATH(3.03/05, , AC_MSG_ERROR(Your ROOT version is too old)) ROOT_PATH(, AC_DEFUN(HAVE_ROOT)) For example, if you want to compile some part of your source tree conditionally on wether ROOT is present or not, you can put in your con- file ROOT_PATH(, [ AC_DEFUN(HAVE_ROOT) have_root=yes ]) AM_CONDITIONAL(GOT_ROOT, test "x$have_root" = "xyes") And then in some EXTRA_SOURCES = if GOT_ROOT LIBFOOXTRA = else LIBFOOXTRA = endif lib_LTLIBRARIES = libFoo_la_SOURCES = $(LIBFOOXTRA) The full list of substitution variables are: ROOTCONF full path to root-config ROOTEXEC full path to root ROOTCINT full path to rootcint ROOTLIBDIR Where the ROOT libraries are ROOTINCDIR Where the ROOT headers are ROOTCFLAGS Extra compiler flags ROOTLIBS ROOT basic libraries ROOTGLIBS ROOT basic + GUI libraries ROOTAUXLIBS Auxilary libraries and linker flags for ROOT ROOTAUXCFLAGS Auxilary compiler flags ROOTRPATH Same as ROOTLIBDIR OPTIONS
--help Gives a short list of options available, and exit --version Report the version number of installed ROOT, and exit. --prefix=<prefix> If no arguments is given, reports where ROOT is installed. With an argument of =<prefix>, set the base of the subsequent options to <prefix>. If --exec-prefix is passedwith an argument, that argument overrides the argument given to --prefix for the library path. --exec-prefix=<prefix> If no argument is given, report where the libraries are installed. If an argument is given, use that as the installation base direc- tory for the libraries. This option does not affect the include path. --libdir Print the directory where the ROOT libraries are installed. --incdir Print the directory where the ROOT headers are installed. --libs Output a line suitable for linking a program agains the ROOT libraries. No graphics libraries are output. --glibs As above, but also output for the graphics libraries. --cflags Output a line suitable for compiling a source file againd the ROOT header (class declararion) files. --new Put the library in the library lists. This option must be given before options --libs and --glibs. --nonew Compatiblity option. Does nothing. --auxlibs Print auxiliary libraries and/or system linker flags. --noauxlibs Do not print auxiliary libraries and/or system linker flags in the output of --libs and --glibs. --auxcflags Print auxiliary com- piler flags. --noauxcflags Do not print auxiliary compiler flags in the output of --cflags. --noldflags Do not print library path link option in output of --libs and --glibs.
