Interface to .pc file interface via libpkgconf

Many libraries in compiled languages such as C or C++ provide “.pc” files to specify the flags required for compiling and linking against those libraries. Traditionally, the command line program “pkg-config” is used to query these files. PkgConfigLibPkgConf provides a Perl level API using “libpkgconf” to these files.

PkgConfigLibPkgConf provides a simplified interface for getting the existence, version, cflags and library flags needed for compiling against a package, using the default compiled in configuration of “pkgconf”. For a more powerful, but complicated interface see PkgConfigLibPkgConfClient. In addition, PkgConfigLibPkgConfUtil provides some useful utility functions that are also provided by “pkgconf”.
