NAME

Alien::Build::Plugin::Build::CMake - CMake plugin for Alien::Build  

VERSION

version 1.67  

SYNOPSIS

 use alienfile;
 
 share {
   plugin 'Build::CMake';
   build [
     # this is the default build step, if you do not specify one.
     [ '%{cmake}',
         @{ meta->prop->{plugin_build_cmake}->{args} },
         # ... put extra cmake args here ...
         '%{.install.extract}'
     ],
     '%{make}',
     '%{make} install',
   ];
 };

 

DESCRIPTION

This plugin helps build alienized projects that use "cmake". The intention is to make this a core Alien::Build plugin if/when it becomes stable enough.

This plugin provides a meta property "plugin_build_cmake.args" which may change over time but for the moment includes:

 -G %{cmake_generator}                          \
 -DCMAKE_POSITION_INDEPENDENT_CODE:BOOL=true    \
 -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=%{.install.prefix} \
 -DCMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR:PATH=lib                \
 -DCMAKE_MAKE_PROGRAM:PATH=%{make}

This plugin supports out-of-source builds via the meta property "out_of_source".  

METHODS

 

cmake_generator

Returns the "cmake" generator according to your Perl's "make".  

is_dmake

Returns true if your Perls "make" appears to be "dmake".  

HELPERS

 

cmake

This plugin replaces the default "cmake" helper with the one that comes from Alien::cmake3.  

cmake_generator

This is the appropriate "cmake" generator to use based on the make used by your Perl. This is frequently "Unix Makefiles". One place where it may be different is if your Windows Perl uses "nmake", which comes with Visual C++.  

make

This plugin may replace the default "make" helper if the default "make" is not supported by "cmake". This is most often an issue with older versions of Strawberry Perl which used "dmake". On Perls that use "dmake", this plugin will search for GNU Make in the PATH, and if it can't be found will fallback on using Alien::gmake.
