SEE ALSO

Alien::Build::Plugin::Build::CMake

Alien::Build plugin for cmake This will automatically pull in Alien::cmake3 if you need it.

Alien::CMake

This is an older distribution that provides an alienized cmake. It is different in these ways:

Alien::cmake3 is based on alienfile and Alien::Build

It integrates better with Aliens that are based on that technology.

Alien::cmake3 will provide version 3.0.0 or better

Alien::CMake will provide 2.x.x on some platforms where more recent binaries are not available.

Alien::cmake3 will install on platforms where there is no system cmake and no binary cmake provided by cmake.org

It does this by building cmake from source.

Alien::cmake3 is preferred

In the opinion of the maintainer of both Alien::cmake3 and Alien::CMake for these reasons.
