How can I find out if GNU Scientific Library is installed?

OSX 10.11


Apple doesn't install it (afaik), so you'll need Fink or MacPorts or homebrew or a manual install. Assuming a properly configured PKG_CONFIG_PATH for Fink or MacPorts or homebrew or the manual install, in this case MacPorts, pkg-config might indicate the presence of gsl (and, bonus, the various compiler flags to use).

% pkg-config --cflags --libs gsl
-I/opt/local/include -L/opt/local/lib -lgsl -lgslcblas -lm
