NAME

Alien::CMake - Build and make available CMake library - http://cmake.org/

VERSION

Version 0.11

SYNOPSIS

Alien::CMake during its installation does one of the following:

  • Builds CMake binaries from source codes and installs dev files (headers: *.h, static library: *.a) into share directory of Alien::CMake distribution.

Later you can use Alien::CMake in your module that needs to link with libode like this:

    # Sample Build.pl
    use Module::Build;
    use Alien::CMake;

    my $build = Module::Build->new(
      module_name => 'Any::CMake::Module',
      # + other params
      build_requires => {
                    'Alien::CMake' => 0,
                    # + others modules
      },
      configure_requires => {
                    'Alien::CMake' => 0,
                    # + others modules
      },
      extra_compiler_flags => Alien::CMake->config('cflags'),
      extra_linker_flags   => Alien::CMake->config('libs'),
    )->create_build_script;

NOTE: Alien::CMake is required only for building not for using 'Any::CMake::Module'.

DESCRIPTION

Please consider using Alien::cmake3 instead. It uses newer Alien technology and is more reliable. In particular, this module will download very old binaries for some platforms (some from the 2.x series). In addition Alien::cmake3 will build from source if binaries are not available for your platform. Also Alien::cmake3 integrates more naturally with alienfile and Alien::Build.

In short Alien::CMake can be used to detect and get configuration settings from an already installed CMake. It offers also an option to download CMake source codes and build binaries from scratch.

METHODS

config()

This function is the main public interface to this module:

    Alien::CMake->config('prefix');
    Alien::CMake->config('version');
    Alien::CMake->config('libs');
    Alien::CMake->config('cflags');

bin_dir()

For compatability with Alien::Base, this will return the path containing cmake or empty list if it is already in the PATH.
