EXAMPLES

       After compilation, the following command  generates  a  GI  for  pango:
       vala-gen-introspect pango packages/pango

       This can then be converted to a Vala API as follows:
              vapigen   --pkg   cairo   --vapidir   .  --library  pango  pack-
              ages/pango/pango.gi
