libIDL-config is a tool that is used to determine the compiler and linker flags that should be used to compile and link programs that use the libIDL library. It is also used internally by the .m4 macros for GNU autoconf that are included with libIDL.
libIDL-config accepts the following options:
Print the currently installed version of library on the standard output.
Print a usage summary.
Print the linker flags that are necessary to link with the specified library.
Print the compiler flags that are necessary to compile a program using the specified library.
If specified, use PREFIX instead of the installation prefix that library was built with when computing the output for the --cflags and --libs options. This option is also used for the exec prefix if --exec-prefix was not specified. This option must be specified before any --libs or --cflags options.
