Hi everyone

For my smaller projects I'd like to have 'uninstall' functionality. To remove installed files I can call:

xargs rm < build/install_manifest.txt

Unfortunately this won't delete any folders generated by the installation. Is there a different file that keeps track of the created directories, or what is the recommended way to implement such functionality?

Suppose that I install <project-name>_some_header.hpp in <prefix>/include/<project-name>/ using the command install(TARGETS <project-name> EXPORT <project-name>-targets ARCHIVE DESTINATION lib PUBLIC_HEADER DESTINATION include/<project-name>) then I want not only to remove <prefix>/include/<project-name>/<project-name>_some_header.hpp, but also the directory <prefix>/include/<project-name>/.
