FREETYPE-CONFIG(1)  UNIX Programmer's Manual   FREETYPE-CONFIG(1)

NAME

     freetype-config - Get information about a libfreetype
     installation

SYNOPSIS

     freetype-config [options]

DESCRIPTION

     freetype-config returns information needed for compiling and
     linking programs with the FreeType library, such as linker
     flags and compilation parameters. Alternatively, it can be
     used to query information about the FreeType library version
     installed on the system, such as the installation (directory
     path) prefix or the FreeType version number.

     This program is part of the FreeType package.

OPTIONS

     There are two types of options: output/display selection
     options, and path override options.

     Output selection options
     Only one of the output selection options should be given at
     each program invocation.

     --prefix
          Return the prefix value of the installed FreeType
          library (the default prefix will be `/usr' in most
          cases for distribution-installed packages).

     --exec-prefix
          Return the executable prefix value of the installed
          FreeType library (will often be the same as the prefix
          value).

     --ftversion
          Return the FreeType version number.

     --version
          Return the `libtool version' of the FreeType library.

     --libtool
          Return the library name for linking with libtool.

     --libs
          Return compiler flags for linking with the installed
          FreeType library.

     --cflags
          Return compiler flags for compiling against the
          installed FreeType library.

     --static
          Make command line options display flags for static
          linking.

     Path override options
     These affect any selected output option, except the libtool
     version returned by `--version'.

     --prefix=PREFIX
          Override `--prefix' value with PREFIX.

     --exec-prefix=EPREFIX
          Override `--exec-prefix' value with EPREFIX.

BUGS

     In case the libraries FreeType links to are located in non-
     standard directories, the output from option --libs might be
     incomplete. It is thus recommended to use the pkg-config(1)
     interface instead, which is able to correctly resolve all
     dependencies.
