5.2 Linking Programs With Guile

This section covers the mechanics of linking your program with Guile on a typical POSIX system.

The header file <libguile.h> provides declarations for all of Guile’s functions and constants. You should #include it at the head of any C source file that uses identifiers described in this manual. Once you’ve compiled your source files, you need to link them against the Guile object code library, libguile.

As noted in the previous section, <libguile.h> is not in the default search path for headers. The following command lines give respectively the C compilation and link flags needed to build programs using Guile 2.0:

pkg-config guile-2.0 --cflags
pkg-config guile-2.0 --libs
