net-snmp-config (1)


net-snmp-config - snmp libraries and binaries


net-snmp-config [OPTIONS]


Net-SNMP                                       net-snmp-config(1)

     net-snmp-config  -  returns information about installed net-
     snmp libraries and binaries

     net-snmp-config [OPTIONS]

     The net-snmp-config shell script is designed to retrieve the
     configuration  information  about the libraries and binaries
     dealing with the Simple Network Management Protocol  (SNMP),
     built  from  the net-snmp source package. The information is
     particularily useful for  applications  that  need  to  link
     against  the  SNMP  libraries  and hence must know about any
     other libraries that must be linked in as well.

          displays the net-snmp version number

          displays the indent options from the Coding Style

          displays a example command line  to  search  to  source
          code for a list of available debug tokens

     SNMP Setup commands:

     --create-snmpv3-user   [-ro]  [-a  authpass]  [-x  privpass]
          [-A MD5|SHA] [username]

     These  options  produce the various compilation flags needed
     when building external SNMP applications:

          lists additional compilation flags needed for  external
          applications  (excludes -I. and extra developer warning
          flags, if any)

          lists additional compilation flags needed

          lists libraries needed for building applications

          lists libraries needed for building subagents

     Automated  subagent  building (produces an OUTPUTNAME binary
     file): [This feature has not been extensively  tested,   use
     at your own risk.]

     --compile-subagent OUTPUTNAME [--norm] [--cflags flags]
          [--ldflags flags] mibmodule1.c [...]]

          leave the generated .c file around to read.

     --cflags flags
          extra cflags to use (e.g. -I...).

     --ldflags flags
          extra ld flags to use (e.g. -L... -l...).
