Check ./configure paramters?


Lets say you compile something (./configure --some-paramters=value; make; make install), and you still have the source tree.

Is there some way to go back and check what paramters were passed to ./configure?

Open a terminal and press the up arrow to see what commands you've entered, or read the hidden file .bash_history in your home folder

Hi,

You can also take a look at the logfile created during the ./configure. It's probably called config.log (surprise )

I honestly looked around in the source tree, and didn't find this. That was exactly what I needed, thanks!
