NAME

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

VERSION

version 1.82_01

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.
