 PCAP-CONFIG(1)                                               PCAP-CONFIG(1)
                              15 February 2015



 NAME
      pcap-config - write libpcap compiler and linker flags to standard
      output

 SYNOPSIS
      pcap-config [ --static ] [ --cflags | --libs | --additional-libs ]

 DESCRIPTION
      When run with the --cflags option, pcap-config writes to the  standard
      output  the  -I  compiler  flags  required to include libpcap's header
      files.  When run with the --libs option,  pcap-config  writes  to  the
      standard  output  the  -L  and  -l  linker flags required to link with
      libpcap, including -l flags for libraries required by  libpcap.   When
      run  with  the  --additional-libs  option,  pcap-config  writes to the
      standard output the -L and -l flags for libraries required by libpcap,
      but  not  the -lpcap flag to link with libpcap itself.  By default, it
      writes flags  appropriate  for  compiling  with  a  dynamically-linked
      version  of  libpcap;  the  --static  flag  causes  it  to write flags
      appropriate for compiling with a statically-linked version of libpcap.
