|mnoGoSearch 3.4.1 reference manual: Full-featured search engine software|
|Prev||Chapter 13. Miscellaneous||Next|
Starting with the version 3.0.7, mnoGoSearch is distributed with C API library libmnogosearch making it possible to embed search functionality into your own applications. mnoGoSearch libraries and header files are installed in the /lib and /include directories of the mnoGoSearch installation. Every C source file of your application that uses libmnogosearch functions should include the udmsearch.h header file.
The detailed description of the mnoGoSearch C API is given in Reference II, mnoGoSearch C API function reference. You can also use search.c as an examples of an application using libmnogosearch functions calls.
libmnogosearch may require some dependency libraries, for example libmysqlclient. You can find the udm-config script in the /bin directory of your mnoGoSearch installation. This script helps to take the dependencies into account.
udm-config understands a number command line options. By default udm-config prints the list of all available options:
Usage: ./udm-config [OPTIONS] Options: [--version] [--libs] [--cflags]
When executed with the option
udm-config outputs all linker flags
needed for libmnogosearch dependencies, for example:
# ./udm-config --libs -lm -L/usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient \ -L/usr/local/mnogosearch/lib -lmnogosearch
So you can insert udm-config --libs into the CC compiler command line:
cc myprog.c -o myprog `udm-config --libs`
