pg_config

       PostgreSQL

SYNOPSIS
       pg_config [option...]

DESCRIPTION
       The pg_config utility prints configuration parameters of the currently
       installed version of PostgreSQL. It is intended, for example, to be
       used by software packages that want to interface to PostgreSQL to
       facilitate finding the required header files and libraries.

OPTIONS
       To use pg_config, supply one or more of the following options:

       --bindir
           Print the location of user executables. Use this, for example, to
           find the psql program. This is normally also the location where the
           pg_config program resides.

       --docdir
           Print the location of documentation files.

       --htmldir
           Print the location of HTML documentation files.

       --includedir
           Print the location of C header files of the client interfaces.

       --pkgincludedir
           Print the location of other C header files.

       --includedir-server
           Print the location of C header files for server programming.

       --libdir
           Print the location of object code libraries.

       --pkglibdir
           Print the location of dynamically loadable modules, or where the
           server would search for them. (Other architecture-dependent data
           files might also be installed in this directory.)

       --localedir
           Print the location of locale support files. (This will be an empty
           string if locale support was not configured when PostgreSQL was
           built.)

       --mandir
           Print the location of manual pages.

       --sharedir
           Print the location of architecture-independent support files.

       --sysconfdir

       --cc
           Print the value of the CC variable that was used for building
           PostgreSQL. This shows the C compiler used.

       --cppflags
           Print the value of the CPPFLAGS variable that was used for building
           PostgreSQL. This shows C compiler switches needed at preprocessing
           time (typically, -I switches).

       --cflags
           Print the value of the CFLAGS variable that was used for building
           PostgreSQL. This shows C compiler switches.

       --cflags_sl
           Print the value of the CFLAGS_SL variable that was used for
           building PostgreSQL. This shows extra C compiler switches used for
           building shared libraries.

       --ldflags
           Print the value of the LDFLAGS variable that was used for building
           PostgreSQL. This shows linker switches.

       --ldflags_ex
           Print the value of the LDFLAGS_EX variable that was used for
           building PostgreSQL. This shows linker switches used for building
           executables only.

       --ldflags_sl
           Print the value of the LDFLAGS_SL variable that was used for
           building PostgreSQL. This shows linker switches used for building
           shared libraries only.

       --libs
           Print the value of the LIBS variable that was used for building
           PostgreSQL. This normally contains -l switches for external
           libraries linked into PostgreSQL.

       --version
           Print the version of PostgreSQL.
       If more than one option is given, the information is printed in that
       order, one item per line. If no options are given, all available
       information is printed, with labels.

NOTES
       The option --includedir-server was added in PostgreSQL 7.2. In prior
       releases, the server include files were installed in the same location
       as the client headers, which could be queried with the option
       --includedir. To make your package handle both cases, try the newer
       option first and test the exit status to see whether it succeeded.

       The options --docdir, --pkgincludedir, --localedir, --mandir,
       --sharedir, --sysconfdir, --cc, --cppflags, --cflags, --cflags_sl,
       --ldflags, --ldflags_sl, and --libs were added in PostgreSQL 8.1. The

       The output of pg_config --configure contains shell quotation marks so
       arguments with spaces are represented correctly. Therefore, using eval
       is required for proper results.
