regina-engine-config(1) get information about the installed version of Regina

SYNOPSIS

regina-engine-config [--prefix[=DIR]] [--exec-prefix[=DIR]] [--version] [--libs] [--cflags]

DESCRIPTION

regina-engine-config tells you which compiler and linker flags should be used to build the mathematical engine of Regina into your own programs. Regina's mathematical engine is in the library libregina-engine.so.

Regina is a software package for studying 3-manifold triangulations and normal surfaces. Other key features include angle structures, census enumeration, combinatorial recognition of triangulations, and high-level tasks such as 3-sphere recognition and connected sum decomposition.

OPTIONS

regina-engine-config accepts the following options.
--prefix=DIR
Use DIR instead of the installation prefix that Regina 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 is not specified. This option must be specified before any --libs or --cflags options. If no DIR is specified then the current installation prefix will be written to standard output.

Most people will not need this option.

--exec-prefix=DIR
Use DIR instead of the installation exec prefix that Regina was built with when computing the output for the --cflags and --libs options. This option must be specified before any --libs or --cflags options. If no DIR is specified then the current installation exec prefix will be written to standard output.

Most people will not need this option.

--version
Print the currently installed version of Regina.
--libs
Print the linker flags that are required to link a program against the Regina calculation engine.
--cflags
Print the compiler flags that are required to compile a program that uses the Regina calculation engine.
