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
