NAME
       wx-config - wxWidgets configuration search and query tool

SYNOPSIS
       wx-config [ options... ] [ lib... ]


DESCRIPTION
       wx-config  returns  information about the wxWidgets libraries available
       on your system.  It may be used to retrieve the information you require
       to build applications using these libraries.

       Changing  the  library  options  you  wish  to  use  for an application
       previously involved managing alternative  configurations  by  a  system
       dependent  means.   It  is  now  possible  to  select  from  any of the
       configurations installed on your system via this single tool.  You  can
       view  all  available  configurations  installed  in  the system default
       prefix with the command wx-config --list and select from them by  using
       the feature options described below.

       Optional  LIB  arguments  (comma  or  space  separated)  may be used to
       specify individually the wxWidgets component libraries that you wish to
       use,  or  to  specify  additional  components  not ususally included by
       default.  The magic token std may be used to import all libraries  that
       would  be  used by default if none were specified explicitly.  eg.  wx-
       config --libs std,gizmos


OPTIONS
       wx-config  accepts  the following options with no restrictions on their
       order as was required in previous releases:

       Installed root

       These options change or query the filesystem root  for  the  operations
       listed below.

       --prefix[=PREFIX]
              Without  the optional argument, the current default pre-fix will
              be  output.   If  the  argument  is  supplied,  PREFIX  will  be
              searched  for matching configs in place of the default.  You may
              use both forms in the same command.


       --exec-prefix=[EXEC-PREFIX]
              Similar  to  --prefix,  but  acts on  the  exec-prefix.   If not
              specified will default to the value of prefix.


       Query Options

       These  options  return  information about the wxWidgets default version
       and installed alternatives.

       --list List  all  configs in prefix and show those that match any addi-
              tional feature options given.


       --release
              Output the wxWidgets release number.


       --version-full
              Output the wxWidgets version number in all its glory.


       --basename
              Output the base name of the wxWidgets libraries.


       Feature Options

       These  options select features which determine which wxWidgets configu-
       ration to use.

       ---host=HOST
              Specify  a  (posix extended)  regex  of  host  aliases  to match
              for       cross       compiled       configurations.         eg.
              --host=i586-mingw32msvc, --host=.*  If unspecified,  the default
              is  to  match only configurations native to the build machine.


       --toolkit=TOOLKIT
              Specify a (posix extended)  regex  of  the  toolkits  to  match.
              The  toolkit  is  responsible  for look and feel of the compiled
              application.  eg. gtk,  gtk2,  motif,  msw. If  unspecified  the
              default  is  to  prefer the system default toolkit, but to match
              any toolkit in  the  absence of a stricter specification.


       --version[=VERSION]
              Without the optional argument, return the wxWidgets version.  If
              the  argument is supplied it specifies a (posix extended)  regex
              of the versions to match.  If unspecified the default is to pre-
              fer the  system  default  version,  but  to  match  any  version
              in the absence of a stricter specification.


       --unicode[=yes|no]
              Specify the default character  type  for  the   application.  If
              unspecified,   the   system  default  will be preferred, but any
              type may match in  the  absence  of  a  stricter specification.


       --debug[=yes|no]
              Specify  whether  to create a debug or  release  build  for  the
              application.   If   unspecified,  the  system  default (release)
              will  be preferred, but any type may match in the absence  of  a
              stricter   specification.     Debug   builds  should   never  be
              uploaded to Debian, but are very useful for finding certain com-
              mon  failure  idioms.   You  are   encouraged to use them during
              active development of applications.  They are not binary compat-
              ible  with  the  release libraries.


       --static[=yes|no]
              Specify  whether  to  statically  or  dynamically link wxWidgets
              libraries into your application.   If  unspecified, the   system
              default  (dynamic)  will be preferred, but any type may match in
              the absence of a  stricter  specification.   Static  linking  is
              mainly  useful  still  for cross ports not natively supported by
              Debian, and can be  hazardous  in conjunction with the gtk tool-
              kits.   Note  that  static libraries are no longer  supplied  in
              the  wxGTK packages any more.


       Compiler Options

       These  options generate output required to build an application using a
       particular wxWidgets configuration.

       --libs Output link flags required for a wxWidgets  application.


       --cppflags
              Output parameters required by the C preprocessor.


       --cflags
              Output parameters required by the C compiler.


       --cxxflags
              Output parameters required by the C++ compiler.


       --cc   Output the name of the C compiler $(CC).


       --cxx  Output the name of the C++ compiler $(CXX).


       --ld   Output the linker command.
