NAME
       pcre2-config - program to return PCRE2 configuration

SYNOPSIS

       pcre2-config [--prefix] [--exec-prefix] [--version]
                    [--libs8] [--libs16] [--libs32] [--libs-posix]
                    [--cflags] [--cflags-posix]

DESCRIPTION

       pcre2-config returns the configuration of the installed PCRE2 libraries
       and the options required to compile a program to use them. Some of  the
       options  apply  only  to  the  8-bit,  or  16-bit, or 32-bit libraries,
       respectively, and are not available for libraries that  have  not  been
       built. If an unavailable option is encountered, the "usage" information
       is output.

OPTIONS

       --prefix  Writes the directory prefix used in  the  PCRE2  installation
                 for  architecture  independent  files  (/usr on many systems,
                 /usr/local on some systems) to the standard output.

       --exec-prefix
                 Writes the directory prefix used in  the  PCRE2  installation
                 for architecture dependent files (normally the same as --pre-
                 fix) to the standard output.

       --version Writes the version number of the installed PCRE2 libraries to
                 the standard output.

       --libs8   Writes  to  the  standard  output  the  command  line options
                 required to link with the 8-bit PCRE2 library  (-lpcre2-8  on
                 many systems).

       --libs16  Writes  to  the  standard  output  the  command  line options
                 required to link with the 16-bit PCRE2 library (-lpcre2-16 on
                 many systems).

       --libs32  Writes  to  the  standard  output  the  command  line options
                 required to link with the 32-bit PCRE2 library (-lpcre2-32 on
                 many systems).

       --libs-posix
                 Writes  to  the  standard  output  the  command  line options
                 required to link  with  PCRE2's  POSIX  API  wrapper  library
                 (-lpcre2-posix -lpcre2-8 on many systems).

       --cflags  Writes  to  the  standard  output  the  command  line options
                 required to compile files that use PCRE2  (this  may  include
                 some -I options, but is blank on many systems).

       --cflags-posix
                 Writes  to  the  standard  output  the  command  line options
                 required to compile files that use PCRE2's POSIX API  wrapper
                 library  (this  may  include some -I options, but is blank on
                 many systems).
