If you are a new Conan user, we recommend reading the how to consume packages tutorial.

If you need additional assistance, please ask a question in the Conan Center Index repository.

Simplest use case consuming this recipe and assuming CMake as your local build tool:

[requires]
pcre2/10.44
[generators]
CMakeDeps
CMakeToolchain
[layout]
cmake_layout
from conan import ConanFile
from conan.tools.cmake import cmake_layout


class ExampleRecipe(ConanFile):
    settings = "os", "compiler", "build_type", "arch"
    generators = "CMakeDeps", "CMakeToolchain"

    def requirements(self):
        self.requires("pcre2/10.44")

    def layout(self):
        cmake_layout(self)

Now, you can run this Conan command to locally install (and build if necessary) this recipe and its dependencies (if any):

$ conan install conanfile.txt --build=missing

Useful information to take into account to consume this library:


These are the main declared targets:

  • CMake package name(s): PCRE2
  • CMake target name(s): pcre2::pcre2
  • pcre2-8 => PCRE2::8BIT
    pcre2-16 => PCRE2::16BIT
    pcre2-32 => PCRE2::32BIT
    pcre2-posix => PCRE2::POSIX
    
  • pkg-config file name(s): libpcre2.pc
  • pcre2-8 => libpcre2-8.pc
    pcre2-16 => libpcre2-16.pc
    pcre2-32 => libpcre2-32.pc
    pcre2-posix => libpcre2-posix.pc
    

A simple use case using the CMake file name and the global target:

# ...
find_package(PCRE2 REQUIRED)
# ...
target_link_libraries(YOUR_TARGET pcre2::pcre2)

These are all the available headers. Some of these ones might be non-public; make sure of it by visiting the pcre2 homepage listed above:

#include "pcre2.h"
#include "pcre2posix.h"
