How to use neon from your application

This section describes how to add neon support to an application. If you just want to quickly try out neon, use the neon-config script.

The neon source code is designed to be easily embedded into an application source tree. neon has no dependencies on libraries other than an SSL toolkit and XML parser, though the source tree can be configured to have no support for SSL or XML if desired. To configure the neon source code some GNU autoconf macros are supplied, which can be used in a number of ways, as follows:

A full fragment might be:

NEON_BUNDLED(libneon, [
  SUBDIRS="libneon $SUBDIRS"

This means the bundled neon source directory (called 'libneon') is used if no neon is found on the system, and the standard XML parser search is used.
