NAME

cups-config - get cups api, compiler, directory, and link information (deprecated).

SYNOPSIS

cups-config --api-version cups-config --build cups-config --cflags cups-config --datadir cups-config --help cups-config --ldflags cups-config [ --image ] [ --static ] --libs cups-config --serverbin cups-config --serverroot cups-config --version

DESCRIPTION

The cups-config command allows application developers to determine the necessary command-line options for the compiler and linker, as well as the installation directories for filters, configuration files, and drivers. All values are reported to the standard output. Note: This command is deprecated and will be removed in a future version of CUPS. The pkg-config(1) command should be used instead.

OPTIONS

The cups-config command accepts the following command-line options: --api-version Reports the current API version (major.minor). --build Reports a system-specific build number. --cflags Reports the necessary compiler options. --datadir Reports the default CUPS data directory. --help Reports the program usage message. --ldflags Reports the necessary linker options. --libs Reports the necessary libraries to link to. --serverbin Reports the default CUPS binary directory, where filters and backends are stored. --serverroot Reports the default CUPS configuration file directory. --static When used with --libs, reports the static libraries instead of the default (shared) libraries. --version Reports the full version number of the CUPS installation (major.minor.patch).

EXAMPLES

Show the currently installed version of CUPS: cups-config --version Compile a simple one-file CUPS filter: cc `cups-config --cflags --ldflags` -o filter filter.c \ `cups-config --libs`

DEPRECATED OPTIONS

The following options are deprecated but continue to work for backwards compatibility: --image Formerly used to add the CUPS imaging library to the list of libraries.
