Alien::Build::Plugin::Probe::CBuilder

NAME

Alien::Build::Plugin::Probe::CBuilder − Probe for system libraries by guessing with ExtUtils::CBuilder

VERSION

version 2.37

SYNOPSIS

use alienfile;
plugin 'Probe::CBuilder' => (
cflags => '−I/opt/libfoo/include',
libs => '−L/opt/libfoo/lib −lfoo',
);

alternately:

ues alienfile;
plugin 'Probe::CBuilder' => (
aliens => [ 'Alien::libfoo', 'Alien::libbar' ],
);

DESCRIPTION

This plugin probes for compiler and linker flags using ExtUtils::CBuilder. This is a useful alternative to Alien::Build::Plugin::PkgConfig::Negotiate for packages that do not provide a pkg-config ".pc" file, or for when those ".pc" files may not be available. (For example, on FreeBSD, "libarchive" is a core part of the operating system, but doesn’t include a ".pc" file which is usually provided when you install the "libarchive" package on Linux).

PROPERTIES

options
Any extra options that you want to have passed into the constructor to ExtUtils::CBuilder.

cflags

libs
The linker flags

program
The program to use in the test.

version
This is a regular expression to parse the version out of the output from the test program.

aliens
List of aliens to query fro compiler and linker flags.

lang
The programming language to use. One of either "C" or "C++".
