openssl-info - print OpenSSL built-in information

SYNOPSIS

openssl info [-help] [-configdir] [-enginesdir] [-modulesdir ] [-dsoext] [-dirnamesep] [-listsep] [-seeds] [-cpusettings]

DESCRIPTION

This command is used to print out information about OpenSSL. The information is written exactly as it is with no extra text, which makes useful for scripts.

As a consequence, only one item may be chosen for each run of this command.

OPTIONS

-help

Print out a usage message.

-configdir

Outputs the default directory for OpenSSL configuration files.

-enginesdir

Outputs the default directory for OpenSSL engine modules.

-modulesdir

Outputs the default directory for OpenSSL dynamically loadable modules other than engine modules.

-dsoext

-dirnamesep

Outputs the separator character between a directory specification and a filename. Note that on some operating systems, this is not the same as the separator between directory elements.

-listsep

Outputs the OpenSSL list separator character. This is typically used to construct $PATH (%PATH% on Windows) style lists.

-seeds

Outputs the randomness seed sources.

-cpusettings

Outputs the OpenSSL CPU settings info.
