Hi Dan

I fail to see why that should not work. Producing LLVM bitcode from
C++ with Clang is just adding -emit-llvm flag, right? So, why can't
the SuperBuild configure the child build to use Clang and this flag?
And Bob's your uncle...

Re: [CMake] [cmake-developers] Obtaining header file dependencies of a source file manually

Hi,

# TL;DR

I need a way of determining the header file dependencies of a source
file and inform CMake about them. CMake doesn't do this automatically
because I'm using custom commands for the compilation step so CMake
doesn't do it's usual magic of automatically inferring source file
header dependencies. This is because this part of the compilation step
requires a separate C++ compiler (completely independent from the one
that CMake detects at configure time).

Is there a way of doing this that will also regenerate the
dependencies if the source file changes?

# Long version

A C++ project that I work on [1] is (amongst other things) a compiler.
In order to compile applications it needs to link in a supporting
runtime that is compiled to LLVM bitcode which is linked into the
applications it compiles.

The supporting runtime is written in C++ and compiled with Clang. The
compilation of the runtime is currently achieved using
``add_custom_command()`` and so I am not using CMake's in built
support for detecting header file dependencies. The reason for doing
it this way is because the LLVM bitcode compiler (i.e. Clang) **is
not** the same compiler as the host C++ compiler for the project. For
example the host code might be built with MSVC but the supporting
runtime is **always** built with Clang.

To see this concretely take a look at [2].

The build works correctly if you build from a clean build directory.
It does not work correctly if you perform a rebuild and change one of
the header files that the supporting runtime depends on. This is
because CMake doesn't know that the runtime source files depend on the
header files and so doesn't rebuild the relevant source files.

I can obviously tell CMake about these manually (adding more entries
under ``DEPENDS`` in the ``add_custom_command()`` invocation) but this
is very cumbersome.

What I really need is a way to

* Automatically infer the dependencies of a source file and tell CMake
about them
* Have the dependencies automatically regenerated if the source file
changes (someone could add or remove a header file include).

In a simple Makefile build system this typically achieved by doing
something like this:

```
all:: $(SRCS:.cpp:.o)

SRCS := foo.cpp bar.cpp

# Include SRC file dependencies generated by the compiler if they exist
-include $(SRCs:.cpp=.d)

%.o : %.cpp
  $(CXX) -c $< -o $@ -MP -MMD -MF $*.d
```

Note the ``-M*`` flags get the compiler when it runs to generate
additional makefile rules that will get included next time a build
happens.

I don't really know how to do the same thing with CMake. One idea is
at configure time invoke Clang with the ``-MP -MMD -MF`` flags on each
runtime source file, extract the dependencies then pass them to
``DEPENDS`` in ``add_custom_command()``. If I wanted the dependencies
regenerated if the runtime source file changes then I would need to
somehow get CMake to reconfigure every time this happens.

I don't like this idea very much due to

* Having to invoke Clang manually to determine the dependencies. CMake
already knows how to determine source file dependencies, but this
functionality (AFAIK) isn't exposed to me.

* Reconfiguring every time one of the runtime source file changes is
annoying (configuring can be slow sometimes).

Does anyone have any other ideas? CMake obviously knows how to do all
this stuff already for source files being compiled for the detected
host C++ compiler, I just don't know how to get at this logic for
source files that need to be built with a second independent C++
compiler.

 I do understand the distinction between calling cmake and make and I

 because a) why not ? b) what's the point of globs if they aren't ?

 Imagine my surprise...
 
 Actually, I find your surprise very surprising. You say you understand
 that setting and using variables happens at configure time. Well,
 file(GLOB) populates a variable... so why would you expect those
 variables to be somehow magically special?

Also, very astonishing to me is the fact that after apparently finding
file(GLOB) in the documentation, you clearly didn't read the whole
paragraph. It's right there:

 We do not recommend using  GLOB  to collect  a list of source files
 from your source tree.  If no CMakeLists.txt file changes when a
 source is added or removed then the generated build system cannot
 know when to ask CMake to regenerate.

As you are so fond of clear violations: You failed to RTFM...
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rtfm)

Besides, you seem to be very sure that CMake is the *only* tool that
prefers explicit source file listing. Have you ever used any of the
popular IDE's? Visual Studio? Xcode? Eclipse? They all create explicit
list of files in their projects.

What are the (not so serious) pros and cons of GLOB, even if it worked
the way you think it should?

Pro:
* laziness

Con:
* laziness
* extremely error prone:
  - picks up scratch files
  - works for you but breaks for others because you forgot to commit a
file
  - breaks for you because the other dude forgot to commit his file
* makes it unnecessarily difficult to exclude files from the build
  - temporarily: for testing (you'd need to move the file away and then
remember to move it back; error prone again)
  - permanently: dependent on the platform, configuration, enabled
capabilities etc. And using #ifdef's for this is bad because you
still invoke the compiler and waste time to just compile an empty
file.
* when reading the build system code, you have to switch context in
  order to determine the files included in the build.


On the other hand, initially creating and then maintaining an explicit
list of files is easy. Initially I usually create the list of files like
this using vim:

:r !cd $(dirname %); ls **/*.{c,cpp}; ls **/*.{h,hpp}

 Right now I am writing to a temporary file and running cmake -E

AFAIK the file is written unconditionally, but you can then use

 The problem with unversioned URLs is that people link to them based
 on their current content.  When the content changes in the next version
 some of the links become nonsense.  I don't know how many times I've
 seen links to a version control web viewer posted to say look at
 line 10 here, and of course line 10 has long since changed because
 they didn't use a URL that specifies the repository version.

 What we need is an unversioned URL that automatically redirects to the
 latest versioned URL.  That way someone following a link that is
 intended to be unversioned will get a versioned URL in their browser.
 Unfortunately server-side redirects cause some browsers to strip the
 #tag part of the URLs, and client-side redirects require Javascript.

Thanks for the details. Not worth the trouble, then.

 Hi,

 Suppose I have two personal repositories: A and B. Repository B has a
 dependency on repository A i.e. repository A builds multiple libraries and
 repository B builds multiple libraries and executables. I can build 32-bit
 and 64-bit libraries/executables for both by having a 'build' and
 'buildx64' projects generated by CMake. The libraries and executables are
 put in the default folders (e.g. repoA/build/src/libraryName/Debug and
 repoA/buildx64/src/library/Debug).

 Repo B's executables depend on repo A's libraries and libraries in B.
 Linking with libraries within B is straightforward as CMake is able to
 figure out the necessary paths for the libraries B is building which B's
 executables depend on.

 Repo B also depends on Repo A's libraries and all executables in B have to
 search for them. How do I go about this? Currently I am searching for each
 library by specifying its path:

 # I have a CACHE variable for the path to Repo A's build folder that the
 user must provide
 target_link_libraries(myProject
 repoAPath/build/src/LibName/${CMAKE_CFG_INTDIR})

 which feels like a very wrong way to go about linking with other libraries

Just set the CMAKE_EXECUTABLE_SUFFIX variable in the CMake cache. Be

 I indeed tried the following command:

 But the suffix was not added to the executables. Might be I am missing

That's a bit difficult to debug remotely. Here a few hints:

* Look into the CMakeCache.txt file and verify that the
CMAKE_EXECUTABLE_SUFFIX is correct.
* Grep the sources for this variable, it might be that one of the
CMakeLists.txt or *.cmake files overrides the cache entry.

That's not what Chandan wants to achieve. He wants to have a suffix
appended to every executable being installed, so he can have different
versions installed and select among them through the suffix. Think gcc-4.4,
gcc-4.6 and gcc-4.7 being present on your system.

 Sure; but should be implemented on a per target basis, and certainly not
 globally.  I've had great success just chaining other CMake based projects
 into my builds, if they don't do rude things like set global library
 suffixes that end up propagating through previuosly working projects.

 Dear Micheal, Yngve Decker and Eric

 Thank for remarks.

 Micheal you are right that I want to append a suffix to every executable
 being installed.
 I already have an earlier version of gromacs installed, the suffix would
 help me to distinguish the between the two.

 While looking out for the string SUFFIX in the CMakeCache.txt, I
 encountered a phrase as

 //Suffix for GROMACS binaries (default: _d for double, _mpi for
 // MPI, _mpi_d for MPI and double).
 GMX_BINARY_SUFFIX:STRING=

 What I can understand is if I use the following command it might serve the
 purpose.

 CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/soft/sudip/abc/apps/fftw-3.3.3 
 *GMX_BINARY_SUFFIX=_472*CC=icc cmake .. 
 -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/soft/sudip/abc/apps/gromacs/461

 Hi,

 Yes I tried to set the same variable on my machine but does not work

 As also Michael pointed out, this would not really be a solution for

By not specifying the toolchain file, for instance? If you have the problem

I don't know about Windows, but then you might have a team that shares a

ExternalProject feature instead of building this external dependency over
and over again.

That has nothing to do whether the libraries are shared (i.e. dynamically
linked) or not. It has to do with the way that packaging works (or rather,
doesn't work) on Windows. In the pre-.NET era it was simply impossible to
use library versioning on Windows. If package A installed python.dll
version X.Y into C:\Windows\System32 and later package B installed version
Z.F into the same place, package A stopped working. Further, packagers
where essentially forced to include all dependencies in their packages
because there's no dependency-resolution mechanism. That's why people
started providing a copy of all the dependencies in the installation
directory of their package. Of course, this leads to a lot of duplication,

Leave it to your user. Not your problem. Use find_package() (or
find_library() and find_path()) as appropriate, do your best to deal with
common situations (e.g. Python or Qt having keys in the registry telling

 This is just my view on this topic.
 Personnally, I prefer using add_subdirectory even though
 ExternalProject_Add is probably cleaner (no possible interaction
 between variables of different subdirs).

 Why do I prefer the add_subdirectory, well mostly because:

  1) ExternalProject_Add and add_subdirectory do not play very well
 together. External_Project_Add does all its work at make time, so that
 all UseXXX et al are not generated at configure time. So if you use a
 add_subdirectory for a project with a dependency that its build with
 ExternalProject_Add that will not work.

 2) When you use External_Project_add with a download, and get a
 compilation error, you tend to correct some sources that are placed in
 the build directory which can be very easily removed... This probably
 can be corrected with some External_Project_add magic, but I do not
 know if you can strictly separate the build from the source stuffs.

 3) That being said, it is true that External_Project_add is a little
 bit cleaner and should work directly with subprojects that have a
 functionning build system (not necessarily cmake by the way which is
 another advantage). Using add_subdirectory requires to avoid
 conflicting variables and often some changes from
 CMAKE_{SOURCE,BINARY}_DIR to CMAKE_CURRENT_{SOURCE,BINARY}_DIR.
 The same thing can be said for cmake macros (which one do you take), ...

 Still, when add_subdirectory works, it is in my view simpler and better.

 Theo.

How did you compile SDL?

Most generally, you would do:

find_path(SDL2_INCLUDE_DIR SDL.h PATH_SUFFIXES SDL2)
# I have no idea against which libraries you have to link, so you might
need more than this
find_library(SDL2_LIBRARY SDL)

if(NOT SDL2_INCLUDE_DIR OR NOT SDL2_LIBRARY)
  message(SEND_ERROR Failed to find SDL2)
endif()
include_directories(${SDL2_INCLUDE_DIR})
set(SDL2_LIBRARIES ${SDL2_LIBRARY}) # and possibly others


add_executable(sdl_test sdl_test.cpp)
target_link_libraries(sdl_test ${SDL_LIBRARIES})


Then, when you invoke CMake, you use the
-DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/path/to/SDL/build flag to inform CMake about where to
search for headers and libraries.

Re: [CMake] help: Does CMake support Vxworks platform?

2013-02-04 Thread Michael Wild
AFAIK you will need to cross-compile for VxWorks, and for that you need a
toolchain file that describes the cross-compile toolchain (compiler,
linker, archiver, etc.) to CMake. Googling I found this:
https://github.com/alexbrinister/vxWorks-GCC-NashobaRobotics/blob/master/vxworks-toolchain.cmake.
Perhaps it is of help to you?

  Hello,

 ** **

 I will use CMake to our project. Our project runs on Vxworks, Suse Linux,
 and Windows, So I want CMake supports Vxworks. Also I could modify the
 source code, but that is difficult for me. So I hope developers could add
 the Vxworks platform supported.

Re: [CMake] add_custom_command

 First things first: You should *never* pollute your source tree, always
 output to the build tree.
 This is part of a google code project and the output file is a report in
 the wiki. It belongs in the repository. Actually, its not an output from
 the build itself, but output from a test, run just after the build.
 

 You need a top-level target that DEPENDS on the output, that's all. E.g.

 add_custom_target(createWikiReports ALL DEPENDS ${resultFile})
 I ended up doing this instead;
 set( resultFileFolder ${CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR}/wiki/reports)
 
 add_custom_target(test PACKAGE
 COMMAND ${exe_path}/${target}.exe ${resultFileFolder}
 )
 
 This seem to work well with borland, but with visual studio it is
 executed before the target is built, which is a problem, obviously.

You need a DEPENDS ${target}, otherwise the build order of top-level
targets is determined by the build system. The drawback is, that custom
targets are always considedered to be out-of-date, i.e. will be invoked
on every single build. After all, they don't know anything about the
output...

 
 So perhaps the combination of add_custom_command and add_custom_target
 is needed?

If you want to run the command only if any of the dependencies
(executable, input files) changes, yes.

 
 Weird that it behaves differently using borland and visual studio though?

As mentioned, top-level targets without explicit dependencies are built
in which-ever order they please.

 BTW: You don't need to specify the full path to the executable in the
 COMMAND, and also no DEPENDS on it in the custom command. Just use the
 target name, and CMake will handle the rest for you.
 I always seem to have problem with the paths regarding targets, because
 of Visual Studios addition of Debug and Release.
 -totte

It's not clear what you want to say here... Does it work with the target
name, or does it no?

This will always work:

add_executable(frobnicate frobnicate.c)

add_custom_command(OUTPUT ${resultFile}
  COMMAND frobnicate ${resultFileFolder}
  WORKING_DIRECTORY ${PROJECT_SOURCE_DIR}
  COMMENT Generating Wiki reports
  VERBATIM)

add_custom_target(generateReports ALL DEPENDS ${resultFile})

 You need to set the VERSION and SOVERSION target properties:

 http://cmake.org/cmake/help/v2.8.8/cmake.html#command:set_target_properties
 
 Right. One example:
 
 set(MYLIB_VERSION_MAJOR 0)
 set(MYLIB_VERSION_MINOR 1)
 set(MYLIB_VERSION_PATCH 1)
 set(MYLIB_VERSION_STRING 
 ${MYLIB_VERSION_MAJOR}.${MYLIB_VERSION_MINOR}.${MYLIB_VERSION_PATCH})
 
 set_target_properties(MyLib PROPERTIES VERSION ${MYLIB_VERSION_STRING}
   SOVERSION ${MYLIB_VERSION_MAJOR})
 

As an added remark: The SOVERSION is not necessarily the same as the
major version. The rule is that any breakage of the ABI must be
indicated by incrementing the SOVERSION. So, adding e.g. functions is no
problem, modifying argument lists or removing functions would required
the SOVERSION to be incremented. Similar rules hold of course for
non-opaque data-structures. For C++ the whole issue is infinitely more
complicated, as determining whether the ABI was changed in an
incompatible way is AFAIK nearly impossible.

 Just curious: was it a misspelled variable name? Would you have gotten a
 warning if you used --warn-unused-vars on the cmake command line?
 

Not misspelled, it was a unhandled situation. When I originally wrote
that code years ago I consciously decided to only handle i386 and x86_64
and figured I'd deal with other architectures when the situation crops
up. Well, I completely forgot about that, and here it is ;-) And yes,
that flag would have fired, but then I also rely on undefined variables...

Re: [CMake] cmake output file naming

2012-08-17 Thread Michael Wild
BTW, I found that using lcov is much easier than trying to figure out
the raw gcov output and it handles the output file naming automatically too.

 By the way, why not making this a feature (instead of keeping it as an
 internal variable with a chance that it gets dropped in future). A
 suggestion though :)

 The implementation is here:

 If you really want to avoid the extension you can set the
 undocumented internal implementation detail variable:
 
  set(CMAKE_C_OUTPUT_EXTENSION_REPLACE 1)
  set(CMAKE_CXX_OUTPUT_EXTENSION_REPLACE 1)
 
 some time after the project() command call that enables
 the C and CXX languages.  As the variables are internal

  These naming conventions creating trouble for me to run gcov *.cpp

 How does *.cpp match .cpp.o?

 Although GNU Make natively does not support build on content change,

Well, if you have the time, I'm pretty sure that the CMake developers
would happily review your patch implementing this feature.

 
 This feature is available to scons. And I think it is reasonable to
 expect cmake also have it. I seems that people here did think about it
 seriously before, which is a surprise to me.

Yes, but scons is monolithic. It doesn't have the backend build-system
from the front end and hence doesn't have to ensure that GNU Make
behaves consistently with what Xcode, Visual Studio, ninja etc. do.

 I'm not sure ccache replaces hash. My understanding is that ccache
 speed up individual compilation, but all the targets that depends on
 it are still compiled. With hash, a file is checked first whether it
 should be recompiled, if not, it will not be recompiled, and all the
 targets that depend on it will not be compiled either. I'm not with a
 machine that I can check ccache as this moment. Please correct me if
 I'm wrong.
 
 The following compares a few features. But since it is from waf, it
 might be biased in favor of waf. Nevertheless, there are some features
 that available in other tools missing in cmake.
 
 http://code.google.com/p/waf/wiki/WafAndOtherBuildSystems
 

You miss the point. If CMake wanted to offer hash-based checking, it
would need to do so for *all* backends, not just GNU Make. Good look
implementing that hack in Visual Studio or Xcode...

 I get your point that there is not an easy to do content based
 dependency (hash as an approximation) for all backends. For the reason
 mentioned below, I'd think that content based dependency is important.
 The support for this feature should be considered first for GNU make,
 which does seem to be too difficult (as it just requires some
 additional rules). The support for *all* backends can be added later
 on one by one.

I'm not sure how the CMake-devs feel about that, but again, you are most
welcome to submit a patch implementing this.

 
 o Makepp will not recompile if only comments or whitespace in
   C/C++ sources have changed.  This is especially important for header
   files which are automatically generated by other programs and are
   included in many modules.  Even if the date has changed because the
   file was remade, makepp won't recompile if the file hasn't changed.
 

That's plenty dangerous! Only a full C/C++ compiler can decide whether
something is a comment or not (as this requires full parsing
capabilities) and further it might interfere with compiler bugs; I
remember having the problem that with -O3 and old version of the Apple
GCC produced code that segfaulted depending on whether a certain comment
line was present or not!

Install dblatex and then run

to generate DocBook XML output which you then can process with your
favourite tool-chain (e.g. dblatex or the xmlto convenience wrapper).

However, it seems that the XML output does not validate (at least with
CMake 2.8.6 that is...). xmllint really chokes badly on it.

Re: [CMake] How to build only when file contents are actually changed?

2012-08-13 Thread Michael Wild
CMake really leaves the decision when to recompile something to the
backend, i.e. GNU Make, Xcode, Visual Studio, ninja etc. It merely
defines dependencies and then lets the actual build tool handle the
rest, and most of them choose to use simple time-stamps instead of
hashes. Also note that computing the hash might also incur considerable
overhead, in particular for very large projects with thousands of files.

You can alleviate the situation a bit by using e.g. ccache to speed up
unnecessary recompilations. E.g. on a system that has ccache installed
in /usr/lib/ccache (Ubuntu, Debian,...)

mkdir build
cd build
rm -rf *
PATH=/usr/lib/cchace:$PATH cmake ..

will build using ccache instead the normal compilers.

 Hi,

 I just looked at
 http://www.cmake.org/Wiki/CMake/Tutorials/How_to_create_a_ProjectConfig.cmake_file
 to learn about exporting build information to the installation, and
 started off by copying-and-pasting the contents of the tutorial to my
 own project. It doesn't quite run through since there's this one
 undefined variable ${INSTALL_DATA_DIR}. I have no idea what this is
 actually supposed to be.
 
 Usually this is the install prefix location of the data of your project.
 Like some dictionaries, or template files for something, may be CMake script
 files as well or 
 
 You can have a look  at GNUInstallDirs.cmake module to chekcout various
 standard directories.
 
 cmake --help-module GNUInstallDirs
 
 
 Anyone?
 
 The example is buggy, if you take the FooBar.zip as-is it can be configured
 but trying to install gives you:
 
 -- Install configuration: 
 CMake Error at cmake_install.cmake:56 (FILE):
   file cannot create directory: /FooBar/CMake.  Maybe need administrative
   privileges.
 
 telling you that INSTALL_DATA_DIR has not been defined in the project.
 I guess you get similar error?
 
 Concerning ProjectConfig file you should have a look at the helper module:
 CMakePackageConfigHelpers.cmake
 
 see:
 cmake --help-module CMakePackageConfigHelpers
 
 it provides macros which helps to produce package config files.

You should read up on execute_process() instead:

 Hi all,
 
 In my project I have a python program (call it program.py) that
 references a python module also in my project (call it pymodule).
 program.py gets installed to ${CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX}/bin/program and
 pymodule gets installed to ${PYTHON_INSTALL_DIR}.
 
 To make sure the program.py program always finds pymodule, I treat it
 like a config script in cmake and then add the following to the top of
 program.py.in http://program.py.in:
 
 import sys
 sys.path.append(@PYTHON_INSTALL_DIR@)
 import pymodule
 
 This works great, but it means that I can only run program.py after
 running a make install, and running it from the installed location.
 
 My question is, is there are clever way of doing this so that I can run
 program.py from the build directory, without having to install it? (But
 have it still run properly when installed)
 
 Thanks,
 Kyle

Call CONFIGURE_FILE() twice, once for the installation and once for the
build-tree:

set(CONFIG_PY_DIR ${PROJECT_SOURCE_DIR})
configure_file(program.py.in ${PROJECT_BINARY_DIR}/program.py @ONLY)
set(CONFIG_PY_DIR ${PYTHON_INSTALL_DIR})
configure_file(program.py.in
  ${PROJECT_BINARY_DIR}/installFiles/program.py @ONLY)
install(PROGRAMS ${PROJECT_BINARY_DIR}/installFiles/program.py
  DESTINATION bin)


You'll need to replace PYTHON_INSTALL_DIR with CONFIG_PY_DIR in your
program.py.in file, of course. Also, I would replace the
sys.path.append(@CONFIG_PY_DIR@) call with sys.path.insert(0,
@CONFIG_PY_DIR@). There are pros and cons for each...

Re: [CMake] Writing a custom Find*.cmake file for Pantheios

2012-07-17 Thread Michael Wild
A few comments:

* transform all CMake commands to lower case names: s/IF/if/g,
s/ELSE/else/g, s/ENDIF/endif/g, s/SET/set/g etc.

* spelling: s/Settung/Setting/g

* docs list a component NFrontEnd, but that string doesn't show up in
the actual code. Typo?

* just set the default front- and backends before parsing the
Pantheios_FIND_COMPONENTS. Then you can also just drop the
PANTHEIOS_HAVE_{FRONT,BACK}END variables. Much simpler that way.

* set the default for PANTHEIOS_WIDESTRING before the
if(Pantheios_FIND_COMPONENTS), then you can remove the else() block.

* when defaulting PANTHEIOS_ROOT, use the
get_filename_component(PANTHEIOS_ROOT ${PANTHEIOS_INCLUDE_DIR} PATH)
idiom. Also, don't compare PANTHEIOS_INCLUDE_DIR against the empty
string. In a previous run, if not found, it can be set to
PANTHEIOS_INCLUDE_DIR_NOT-FOUND, which is not the empty string! Just use
if(PANTHEIOS_INCLUDE_DIR) instead. Marking the PANTHEIOS_ROOT variable
as advanced when not being in the cache is useless too.

* using $ENV{PANTHEIOS_ROOT}/include in the HINTS is dangerous since if
the environment variable is not set, it will evaluate to /include which
exists on *NIX systems. Better to use

find_path(PANTHEIOS_INCLUDE_DIR pantheios/pantheios.h
  PATH_SUFFIXES include
  HINTS ${PANTHEIOS_ROOT}
  ENV PANTHEIOS_ROOT)

* Don't set PANTHEIOS_INCLUDE_DIRS to the variable *name*
PANTHEIOS_INCLUDE_DIR. You have to dereference the variable:

set(PANTHEIOS_INCLUDE_DIRS ${PANTHEIOS_INCLUDE_DIR})

* Again, comparing ${PANTHEIOS_INCLUDE_DIR} against the empty string
is wrong! CMake will set its value to ..._NOT-FOUND in case of failure.
Just use

if(PANTHEIOS_INCLUDE_DIR)

and skip the whole message() stuff.

* Using file(GLOB ...) is almost certainly wrong. You'll need to find
out how the Pantheios library naming scheme works. From your example,
i'd think you could use the following when using Visual Studio:

# No idea what the UNIXEm stuff is, so I don't handle it here...
set(_P_COMP_TAG)
set(_P_OS_TAG)
set(_P_ARCH_TAG)
if(MSVC)
  if(MSVC60)
set(_P_COMP_TAG vc6)
  elseif(MSVC70)
set(_P_COMP_TAG vc7)
  elseif(MSVC71)
set(_P_COMP_TAG vc71)
  elseif(MSVC80)
set(_P_COMP_TAG vc8)
if(CMAKE_SIZEOF_VOID_P EQUAL 8)
  set(_P_ARCH_TAG .x64)
endif()
  elseif(MSVC90)
set(_P_COMP_TAG vc9)
if(CMAKE_SIZEOF_VOID_P EQUAL 8)
  set(_P_ARCH_TAG .x64)
endif()
  elseif(MSVC10)
set(_P_COMP_TAG vc10)
if(CMAKE_SIZEOF_VOID_P EQUAL 8)
  set(_P_ARCH_TAG .x64)
endif()
  endif()
elseif(...)
  ...
endif()

set(_P_LIB_TAG ${_P_COMP_TAG}${_P_OS_TAG}${_P_ARCH_TAG})

all the local and remote backends, and also you missed the actual
globbing in the backend and frontend libraries...)

You can use configure_file with COPYONLY in the CMakeLists.txt files,
but then, you'll have to reconfigure every time one of them changes.

Re: [CMake] Custom install target to install only files

 Is there a way to have custom install target like
 make install script which will install only required script files with
 building source code for binary files?
 
 regards
 Vivek Goel

Add the COMPONENT scripts option to the install() command and then
install the scripts like this:

cmake -DCOMPONENT=scripts -P cmake_install.cmake

Note that the -D option must be *before* the -P option, otherwise it is
ignored.

 Hello everyone,
 
 It seems that, in Qt 4.8.1 (at least in the Debian packages), the QtWebKit

 Thus, this makes FindQt4.cmake fails to find the QtWebkit modules, beucase
 a module is considered found when both its libraries files and directories
 are found. As a consequence, include directories are not set if the
 QT_USE_QTWEBKIT variable is set to TRUE (for instance), and code fails to
 compile.
 
 I don't know if this is an issue with the Debian packages of Qt (last
 packages in sid as of today), or if Qt decided to build QtWebkit within
 QtGui.
 
 Attached to this mail is a temporary patch (well, an ugly *hack* actually)

 Any help most appreciated.

 Can you please summarize what you actually want to achieve ?
 
 Well, I tried to, above.
 
 In short, I want to create separate main and -dev packages without
 building twice, under the constraints imposed by 0install.
 
 Do you say that libFoo installs a FindFoo.cmake as part of libFoo-devel ?

 If that's the case, then this is wrong.
 
 I'm sorry, that *is* wrong.  It installs a FooConfig.cmake as part of 
 libFoo.devel
 
 FindFoo.cmake must be part of the using software, not of the software to be
 searched.

 Why do you have to find the installed library in this cache directory
 ?
 
 Because, in a 0install world, that's where things go when you install
 them.
 


Ok, how you do it along these lines:

CMakeLists.txt:
#-- BOF

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8 FATAL_ERROR)
project(Foo)

set(FOO_VERSION 1.2.3)

# initialize (absolute) installation directory variables

  Install path for CMake files)
foreach(t BIN LIB INCLUDE CMAKE)
  if(NOT IS_ABSOLUTE ${INSTALL_${t}_DIR})
set(INSTALL_${t}_DIR ${CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX}/${INSTALL_${t}_DIR})
  endif()
  mark_as_advanced(INSTALL_${t}_DIR)
endforeach()

# configure FooConfig.cmake and friends. FooConfig.cmake must be able

# directory without using absolute paths.
configure_file(cmake/FooConfig.cmake.in
  ${PROJECT_BINARY_DIR}/FooConfig.cmake @ONLY)
configure_file(cmake/FooConfigVersion.cmake.in
  ${PROJECT_BINARY_DIR}/FooConfigVersion.cmake @ONLY)

# configure the headers into the build tree so the package can be used
# without installing it and not hard-coding the source/build directory
# information into FooConfig.cmake
configure_file(include/foo.h
  ${PROJECT_BINARY_DIR}/include/foo.h COPYONLY)

# build targets
add_library(foo src/foo.cpp include/foo.h)
set_target_properties(foo PROPERTIES
  PUBLIC_HEADER include/foo.h
  VERSION ${FOO_VERSION}
  SOVERSION 1.0)
add_executable(bar bar.cpp)

With such a setup, you do something like the following for the
installation into the cache directories:

mkdir /path/to/build-tree
cd /path/to/build-tree
cmake /path/to/source-tree
make
DESTDIR=/path/to/bin-cache cmake -DCOMPONENT=bin -P cmake_install.cmake

 Please have a lokok at the new macro configure_package_config_file() which is 
 in cmake 2.8.8.
 This helps a lot with writing config files which are relocatable.
 The Config.cmake.in file has to contains a few special variables/macros:
 @PACKAGE_INIT@
 set(FOO_INCLUDE_DIR @PACKAGE_INSTALL_INCLUDE_DIR@ )
 set(FOO_BIN_DIR @PACKAGE_INSTALL_BIN_DIR@ )
 i.e. for every FOO_XYZ variable use a @PACKAGE_FOO_XYZ@ variable, and the 
 configure_package_config_file() will replace this with the help of the 
 @PACKAGE_INIT@ macro with a relocatable version.
 http://www.cmake.org/cmake/help/v2.8.8/cmake.html#module:CMakePackageConfigHelpers
  configure_file(cmake/FooConfigVersion.cmake.in
  ${PROJECT_BINARY_DIR}/FooConfigVersion.cmake @ONLY)

  # information into FooConfig.cmake
  configure_file(include/foo.h
  ${PROJECT_BINARY_DIR}/include/foo.h COPYONLY)
 The input file should have a suffix which indicates it is a file which is 
 intended to be configured, usually foo.h.in.
 Alex

I don't agree, since it's COPYONLY. Besides, with a little more work in 
FooConfig.cmake you can skip that step...

 because they are full of absolute paths.  I wrote a simple program to
 adjust the paths in the cmake_install.cmake files as a postprocessing

 only problem: on my Mac, /tmp is a symlink to /private/tmp, and in some
 scenarios the absolute path in cmake_install.cmake is the short one
 wheras while $CWD is the long one.  No match :(
 
 I started to write some code to address this problem, but it's getting
 complex to the point where it seems like there must be a better way.
 So I ask: is there?
 
 Thanks in advance,
 

I'm afraid that the answer is no. There is the variable
CMAKE_USE_RELATIVE_PATHS, but that is broken and does not work in
general. Just out of curiosity: Why do you need to cache the build tree
in the first place? Would it be enough to make install
DESTDIR=/path/to/cache?

Hi Giovanni

I think you misunderstand what FortranCInterface.cmake does. It doesn
*not* generate signatures, it only generates macros to handle the
*name-mangling* for you. You still have to provide the signatures
yourself, using the defined macros. E.g. (I hope I get this one right,
it's been quite some time I last did this...):

void F_ADDCOLSQ(int M, int N, double* A, int LDA, double* Q, int LDQ,
int K, int P, double* TAU, double* WORK, int* info);


I hope this gets you started.

 I made a hello world program in c++, building in a CMake project.
 That variable gets defined during cmake.  It does not trigger the
 inclusion of -isysroot /some/path/to/an/sdk in flags.make.
 Thank you for your reply.

I think it depends on what you set it to. If it's the default SDK, it
doesn't get included. It could also be that the
CMAKE_OSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET variable plays into this.

Sadly, my Mac died quiet some time ago, so I can't check right now...

 Hi,
 
 I have not been able to find the answer to my current problem so I
 thought I'd try a new post. Before diving into the details, please be
 aware that the code I am writing compiles/runs perfectly with a personal
 Makefile I wrote.
 
 My code is written in C++ and has many different class definitions. To
 run different simulations some classes may or may not have actual
 objects created. However, there are other portions of the code that
 specifically reference functions from nearly all classes (although this
 code might not actually be used because the object was never created).
 The linking errors that I am facing arise when I do not make an object
 of a given class. Other parts of the code need to be aware that the
 class exists, even if an object was never made. Although this seems like
 it would be a result of not including the appropriate header files, I
 assure you they are correct! For some reason, if I do not make an object
 of a given class cmake ignores the class and when it comes time to
 link everything together I get the following error:
 
 Linking CXX executable collision

 PLEASE NOTE: If in my main.cpp file I simply create an SWall object and
 never use it, the errors go away and everything works perfectly. I
 simply do not understand why cmake would care whether or not I actually
 make an object of a given class!
 
 The following is my CMakeLists.txt file in the highest level directory:
 
 cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8)
 
 project(collision CXX)
 
 add_subdirectory(Extraneous)
 add_subdirectory(Output)
 add_subdirectory(Simulation)
 add_subdirectory(CollisionObject)

 target_link_libraries(collision Circle)
 target_link_libraries(collision Output)
 target_link_libraries(collision SimpleMath)
 
 INSTALL(PROGRAMS ${CMAKE_BINARY_DIR}/collision DESTINATION
 ${CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR})
 
 All of the lower level directories simply had add_library(libname
 libname.cpp) in the CMakeLists.txt file. Any help is greatly appreciated!
 
 Thanks,
 Matthew

What happens if you set BUILD_SHARED_LIBS to TRUE? Or, alternatively,
add the SHARED option to all of the add_library() calls?

BTW: you can link against all those libraries in a single call:

target_link_libraries(collision
  Simulation
  PriorityQueue
  Event
  Ball
  ...
  )

Re: [CMake] Forcibly run 'moc' on Qt files that are NOT part of the build

2012-03-07 Thread Michael Wild
On 03/07/2012 04:10 PM, Michael Jackson wrote:
 In an effort to speed up the build of a project that uses Qt (and moc) I 
 tried an alternate approach with the moc files. Normally I use the basic idea 
 of gathering the headers that need to be moc'ed and feed those to moc with 
 this type of CMake Code:
 
 QT4_WRAP_CPP( FilterWidgets_Generated_MOC_SRCS ${QFilterWidget_HDRS} 
 ${FilterWidget_GEN_HDRS}) 
 
 The in the Add_Executable(...) call include the 
 ${FilterWidgets_Generated_MOC_SRCS} variable to the list of sources. In my 
 project I have at least 30 auto-generated files which all get moc'ed. That 
 gives me an additional 60 compiled files. So I tried the idea of #include 
 moc_[some_file.cxx] in each of the auto-generated .cpp files for each 
 Widget. This would cut the number of files compiled in half. The issue is 
 that since they are being #include'ed in the .cpp files then they do NOT need 
 to be compiled themselves so I took the ${FilterWidgets_Generated_MOC_SRCS} 
 out of the list of sources in the add_executable() call. What happened is 
 that CMake did NOT run moc on those headers because there were now NOT 
 included in the build.
 
  So for that version of the cmake code I have something like this:
 
 QT4_WRAP_CPP( FilterWidgets_Generated_MOC_SRCS ${FilterWidget_GEN_HDRS}) 
 QT4_WRAP_CPP( FilterWidgets_MOC_SRCS ${QFilterWidget_HDRS} )
 
 Is there a way to forcibly run the moc step even if the resulting source 
 files are NOT directly included in the add_executable? Custom_Command? 
 Add_Depends?
 
 Thanks

You could still add them to the add_executable() call, but set their
HEADER_FILE_ONLY source file property to TRUE to prevent them from being
compiled. This way they would still show up in the proper place in
IDE's, and no need for fiddling around with add_custom_target() and
add_dependencies(). Of course, you might still want to introduce the
custom target for convenience so you can trigger moc'ing manually (e.g.
make moc)...

Re: [CMake] recognizing shell in use

2012-03-06 Thread Michael Wild
That's the wrong way to go about things. Rather than putting the COMMAND
in the custom target, put it in a add_custom_command() call and make the
custom target DEPENDS on it. Then you let the build system handle the
dependencies. E.g. like this:

find_program(JAVAC_COMPILER javac PATH_SUFFIXES bin ENV JAVA_HOME)

add_custom_command(OUTPUT ${CMAKE_CURRENT_BINARY_DIR}/test.class
  COMMAND ${JAVAC_COMPILER} -d ${PROJECT_BINARY_DIR}
${PROJECT_BINARY_DIR}/test.java
  DEPENDS ${PROJECT_BINARY_DIR}/test.java
  COMMENT Compiling test.java
  VERBATIM)

add_custom_target(compile-test-java
  DEPENDS ${PROJECT_BINARY_DIR}/test.class)


It looks like test.java is a generated file, so depending on how you
generate it, you also need to set the GENERATED source file property to
TRUE in order for this to work.

 Michael,
 
 Thanks for pointing me to the find_package command!  One more
 detail-question however: in the docs online at
 http://www.cmake.org/cmake/help/cmake-2-8-docs.html#command:find_package
 is the syntax written as:
 
   find_package(package [version] [EXACT] [QUIET]
[[REQUIRED|COMPONENTS] [components...]]
[NO_POLICY_SCOPE])
 
 Notice the [REQUIRED|COMPONENTS] from which i deduce that the
 find_package command should probably be written as
 
   find_package(Boost REQUIRED regex)
 
 I tried it, and it seems to work...
 
 Kind regards,
 Bart

You are absolutely right, I wrote my reply from memory, and got it
obviously wrong ;-)

Re: [cmake-developers] How to handle package Config.cmake files with dependencies ?

2012-02-27 Thread Michael Wild
On 02/27/2012 09:15 PM, Alexander Neundorf wrote:
 Hi,
 
 I think find_package in Config mode might still need some more work.
 
 When the FooConfig.cmake has been found, Foo_FOUND is set to TRUE:
 
  // Set a variable marking whether the package was found.
   std::string foundVar = this-Name;
   foundVar += _FOUND;
 
 
 This means it is true in all cases that the Config.cmake file has been found 
 (and the version was compatible).
 
 Now I have to questions:
 
 
 * how to handle COMPONENTS ?
 
 
 If a package is requested with COMPONENTS, these should be considered for 
 setting Foo_FOUND:
 find_package(Foo REQUIRED COMPONENTS A B C)
 should only succeed if A, B and C are found.
 
 This is how I would expect COMPONENTS to be handled in a FindFoo.cmake:
 (a) all components are searched by the Find-module, and each per-component 
 X_Y_FOUND is set accordingly
 
 (b) there is a package-specific default subset of these components which have 
 to be found to make the package found, i.e. FOO_FOUND=TRUE
 
 (c) by adding COMPONENTS to the find_package() call, these components are 
 added to the set of components which have to be found to make FOO_FOUND=TRUE
 
 (d) if REQUIRED is used and FOO_FOUND is false, it errors out
 

I like that proposal. I'm also quite unhappy with how components are
handled in config-mode.

 
 
 * how to handle dependencies ?
 
 
 Let's say the exported targets of Foo link against other imported/exported 
 targets. So that the imported targets work properly, the targets for the 
 libraries it depends on must have been found and imported before.
 Where should this 
 find_package(Bar)
 be done ?
 In FooConfig.cmake ?
 This would be possible only if Bar can be found in Config mode, because 
 otherwise Foo cannot rely on FindBar.cmake being available.
 
 For Find-modules, it is clear that a Find-module should also find all its 
 dependencies.
 For a Config file I'm not sure about it. Shouldn't this be only a source of 
 information, purely declarative, and not initiate searching other packages ?


I think current best practice is to call find_package(Bar) inside the
FooConfig.cmake. If the FindBar.cmake is contained in CMake,
everything's fine (possibly, you need a cmake_minimum_required()),
otherwise Foo should install FindBar.cmake alongside FooConfig.cmake.

Seriously? You must be an annoyingly happy person if that's your biggest

 at least when to use upper and when to use a lower case?

Variables *are* case-sensitive. Only commands, macros and functions are
case-insensitive.

 
 For example user defined variables should be upper or lower case?

If the variables is cached, the convention is to use all-caps. A lot of
people use all-caps for all other variables too. I tend to mix them,
e.g. loop variables are quite often 1-3 lower-case letters because they
are used only very locally and their meaning is pretty clear. Anything
that is not used in a very local context is all-caps in my code.

But all of this is pure convention and personal preference...

 
 Or what happens if I hide by mistake a CMake-defined variable? (are they
 all upper case?)

The only occasion where you can hide a CMake-defined variable is inside
a function(). Otherwise you *overwrite* it's value. And you often want
to actually do that (e.g. to set the output directories for executables,
libraries, archives etc.).

If A is built with CMake, AA should make it install AConfig.cmake in one
of the directories documented for the find_package command. See
http://www.cmake.org/Wiki/CMake/Tutorials/How_to_create_a_ProjectConfig.cmake_file
for a simplistic tutorial.

Otherwise BB can include FindA.cmake in its own package. If it is a
transitive dependency (i.e. people wanting to compile against B also
need to find A) it should be installed next to the BConfig.cmake which
uses it directly.

Hi Orion

Whenever an installation directory is not an absolute path, CMake
prefixes it with the value of CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX. This is for
convenience and make it easier to be consistent. AFAIK this behaviour is
similar to what autoconf does.

So, as long as your CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX and CMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR are
consistent, you should be fine. Normally I consider setting projects
which set any of the CMAKE_INSTALL_*DIR (or whatever they are called) to
an absolute path to be a nuisance for the user because it is not enough
to set one variable (CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX) in order to change the
installation prefix. But that is IMHO a matter of taste and you can
argue both ways.

My 2c...

 Hi,
 
  
 
 If the project name has a symbols “-” or “+” the $TARGET_FILE:tgt in
 the add_custom_command() return Error: “Error evaluating generator
 expression”
 
  
 
 For example:
 
 SET ( PROJECT_NAME 00010-Liquid+Gas_as_capture  )
 
 set ( SRCS_MAIN_CPT main.c  )
 
 add_executable ( ${ PROJECT_NAME } ${SRCS_MAIN_CPT} )
 
  
 
 add_custom_command ( TARGET ${ PROJECT_NAME } POST_BUILD
 
 COMMAND $TARGET_FILE:${
 PROJECT_NAME }
 
 ARGS $TARGET_FILE_DIR:${
 PROJECT_NAME }/110.cnf
 
 COMMENT Running cpt.exe...
 
  
 
 )
 
  
 
 When I run the CMake I received the following error:
 
  
 
 “CMake Error at problems.rt.Cmake:114 (add_custom_command):
 
   Error evaluating generator expression:
 
 $TARGET_FILE:00010-Liquid+Gas_as_capture
 
 Expression syntax not recognized.”
 
  
 
 Is this a bug or some syntax limitation?
 
  
 
 Regards,
 
 Alexey

As a work-around use a different target name which is clean and then
use the OUTPUT_NAME target property to get the desired file name.

 First you should use the COMPONENT parameter of the INSTALL command.
 See:
 cmake --help-command install

 http://www.cmake.org/Wiki/CMake:Component_Install_With_CPack
 
 then you may install all the target/files/... belonging to a
 particular component by doing:
 
 cd buildir
 cmake -DCOMPONENT=componentname -P cmake_install.cmake

 OK;
 
 thank you. That was maybe slightly more involved than I had thougth -

 The documentation you get from

 cmake --help-full

 refers to the IMPORTED_LOCATION property as one of the more important
 ones set for imported targets.  I have to agree that location is the
 most important property for imported targets, but the name appears to
 be wrong for the documentation of this property!

 After screwing around for a while trying to use the above
 property for my imported targets, I discovered (by guessing) that the
 name of a property that actually does give the location information is
 IMPORT_LOCATION, not IMPORTED_LOCATION.  For what it is worth,
 IMPORT_LOCATION works for an imported library, and I haven't tried
 this on imported executables. (By the way, LOCATION works as well, but
 that appears from the documentation to be a left-over from CMake 2.4
 which is why I tried to get IMPORTED_LOCATION to work and when that
 failed, switched to the currently undocumentated IMPORT_LOCATION.)

 I find IMPORTED_LOCATION is mentioned in the following
 places in the cmake-2.8.6 source tree:

 software@raven find cmake-2.8.6 -print0 -type f \
 |xargs -0 grep -l IMPORTED_LOCATION
 cmake-2.8.6/ChangeLog.txt
 cmake-2.8.6/Modules/FindQt4.cmake
 cmake-2.8.6/Tests/ExportImport/Import/A/CMakeLists.txt

 cmake-2.8.6/Source/cmAddLibraryCommand.h
 cmake-2.8.6/Source/cmExportBuildFileGenerator.cxx
 cmake-2.8.6/Source/cmExportInstallFileGenerator.cxx

 A similar search for IMPORT_LOCATION found nothing at all!

 However, I spot-checked cmake-2.8.6/Source/cmTarget.cxx, and all those
 mentions of IMPORTED_LOCATION appear to be documentation strings
 rather than executable code, and I was unable to find why
 IMPORTED_LOCATION does not work for me while IMPORT_LOCATION does. So
 this needs someone who is familiar with the CMake code to figure out
 what the actual problem is here, and to decide whether a fix to the
 documentation strings is all that is required or whether some deeper
 change needs to be made.

 Alan

 IMPORTED_LOCATION works just fine for me. Also IMPORT_LOCATION, as you
 call it, is not referenced once in the whole CMake source, while
 IMPORTED_LOCATION is, and not only as a documentation string as you
 claim.
 
 Hi Michael:
 
 Thanks for your response.
 
 Since you cannot verify the issue, then the most likely reason is
 there is some difference between your and my CMake version, minimum
 CMake version (which affects policy decisions), and hardware/software
 platform. Could you be more specific about those constraints in your
 case?
 
 Just to be sure I was reporting a clean result, I started with a
 fresh bootstrap build and install of CMake-2.8.7 that I did on my Debian
 Squeeze platform. I then built and installed PLplot (which
 specifies cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8.2 FATAL_ERROR) from
 scratch using that version of cmake.
 
 I have attached the resulting export module files that are installed
 as a result of that PLplot install.
 
 I then checked imported target properties with the following CMake test
 script
 (which is also attached for convenience).
 
 project(test_export NONE)
 cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8.2 FATAL_ERROR)
 set(CMAKE_MODULE_PATH ${CMAKE_SOURCE_DIR} )
 include(export_plplot OPTIONAL RESULT_VARIABLE IF_PLOT)
 if(IF_PLOT)
   get_target_property(test_loc1 _plplotcmodule IMPORT_LOCATION)
   message(STATUS IMPORT_LOCATION = ${test_loc1})
   get_target_property(test_loc2 _plplotcmodule IMPORTED_LOCATION)
   message(STATUS IMPORTED_LOCATION = ${test_loc2})
 else(IF_PLOT)
   message(WARNING IF_PLOT = ${IF_PLOT})
 endif(IF_PLOT)
 
 And here was the result when cmake was invoked from a sub-directory
 of the one containing the above CMakeLists.txt and the export files.
 
 software@raven cmake ..
 -- IMPORT_LOCATION =
 /home/software/plplot_svn/installcmake/lib/python2.6/site-packages/_plplotcmodule.so
 
 -- IMPORTED_LOCATION = test_loc2-NOTFOUND
 -- Configuring done
 -- Generating done
 -- Build files have been written to: /tmp/cmake_test/build_dir
 
 Note, _plplotcmodule is one of the shared objects generated by PLplot
 for our python bindings, but if you look at the export files, there
 doesn't seem to be anything done differently for _plplotcmodule compared
 to other PLplot library targets, and also I assure you
 the result for IMPORT_LOCATION is correct.
 
 So the above simple script cleanly shows the issue for 2.8.7.
 IMPORT_LOCATION is an imported target property with the correct value
 while IMPORTED_LOCATION is not found.
 
 If you try the same test script with the same exported files, do you
 get a different result? If you still have trouble verifying the above
 result, then please also try CMake-2.8.7 to see whether that version
 is the source

Re: [CMake] About CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX

On 01/24/2012 09:35 AM, pellegrini wrote:
 Hello everbody,
 
 I would like to understand a bit more one feature related to
 CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX initialization.
 
 When reading the documentation, it is specified that this variable
 contains the directory that will be pre-pended to all install
 directories and that it should be defaulted to C:/Program Files on
 Windows. However, in my current build the variable is not defaulted to
 C:/Program Files but to C:/Program Files/libcrysfml where crysfml  is
 the name of my base project.
 
 This unexpected feature (at least to my understanding !) leads me to my
 second question.
 
 I would like to get rid of the crysfml  subdirectory in the value of
 CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX. I could obvioulsy
 use:
get_filename_component(MY_CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX
 ${CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX} PATH)
 but this would fail if CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX is set on the cmake command
 line by the user because, in such case, the installation will not be
 done in the directory that he provided but in its parent directory.
 Rather counter-intuitive.
 
 What I would need is a mechanism to detect whether the
 CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX has been set or not by the user on the
 command-line. If so, I take directly the values he provided, and if not
 so, I take the parent directory of the default value.
 
 Is that possible ?
 
 thanks a lot
 
 Eric
 
 
 

You can use the variable CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX_INITIALIZED_TO_DEFAULT to
determine whether the cache contains the default value or has been
modified by the user. E.g.

project(Foo)
if(WIN32 AND CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX_INITIALIZED_TO_DEFAULT)
  set(CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX ${CMAKE_GENERIC_PROGRAM_FILES} CACHE PATH
Install path prefix, prepended onto install directories. FORCE)
endif()

should do what you want.

Re: [CMake] Copy files to build folder

2012-01-17 Thread Michael Wild
AFAICS these files are considered to be source files, right? So they
should be explicitly listed in the CMakeLists.txt file. If your
CMakeLists.txt file gets too big, you can put the relevant code into
another file and then include() it from the CMakeLists.txt.

Doing this also helps you detecting errors early on. E.g. it is much
less likely that a developer forgets to add the new file to the version
control when you do it this way, because it's not enough to just drop
the file into the source tree.

Also, once you have the files in your CMakeLists.txt, you might as well
just use configure_file(... COPYONLY).

 The idea is to copy all the *.vti files in the patterns folder (and

 works fine when running CMake for the first time. However, if we add a
 new pattern file it doesn't get picked up, even after make clean. (It
 works if we edit the CMakeLists.txt, or delete everything in the build
 folder.) Is there a way to make this work every time?

 Don't use GLOB, but list all files individually in a variable and
 iterate over that. CMake is not executed when doing a make call and no
 cmake-related file has changed and hence the above code is not re-run on
 each make call.

 How should CMake find out that it needs to update it's file list then?
 
 It could re-run the FILE(GLOB) on every build? Instead of making a
 dependency on a list of files, I would like to make a dependency on
 the contents of a folder.
 
 Thanks for all the replies. I understand that the recommended method
 is to have an explicit list of files. And I can see the benefits for
 avoiding slip-ups like adding a file without checking it in.
 
 What confuses me now is that for packaging we can use the INSTALL command:
 
 # copy the patterns from the source folder
 install( DIRECTORY patterns DESTINATION . FILES_MATCHING PATTERN *.vti)
 
 This does exactly what I want: it finds all the *.vti files from the
 patterns folder and subfolders. And yet there's no matching command
 to achieve this in the normal build? Is using the INSTALL command like
 this not recommended?
 

What you can do is something like this:


copy_patterns.cmake:
#
foreach(v SRCDIR DSTDIR)
  if(NOT DEFINED ${v})
message(FATAL_ERROR ${v} not defined on command line)
  endif()
endforeach()

file( GLOB_RECURSE pattern_files RELATIVE
  ${SRCDIR}/ ${SRCDIR}/patterns/*.vti )
foreach(p IN LISTS pattern_files)
  configure_file(${SRCDIR}/${p}
${DSTDIR}/${p} COPYONLY)
endforeach()
#

CMakeLists.txt:
#--
#
add_custom_target(copy_patterns ALL
  COMMAND ${CMAKE_COMMAND} -DSRCDIR=${CMAKE_CURRENT_SOURCE_DIR}
-DDSTDIR=${CMAKE_CURRENT_BINARY_DIR}
-P ${CMAKE_CURRENT_SOURCE_DIR}/copy_patterns.cmake
  COMMENT Copying pattern files to build tree)
#
#

Now since custom targets are always out of date, this rule will always run.

Definitely a bug in MySQL. They should be setting

Otherwise CMake will not use the include directory found by

 yes.
 
 You may try to use CMAKE_CFG_INTDIR instead.
 See:
cmake --help-variable CMAKE_CFG_INTDIR
 
 When executing the PACKAGE target from the IDE, that variable is
 evaluated to

Not quite. CMake evaluates it to $(Configuration) (or what ever the

configuration, i.e. Debug, Release, etc.

 option is set it should be used as the 'top-priority' search location
 for that library, falling back to all the others if it is not found or
 not set.  Ideally this option would be set as a variable so that it is
 visible in e.g. ccmake.
 
 The reason for doing this is that if the user just sets a variable to
 indicate the library path I would then have to manually check that the
 library does indeed exist at that path.
 
 Is there a way to do this?
 
 Many thanks,
 -Martin

There are quite a few such variables:

CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH
CMAKE_LIBRARY_PATH
CMAKE_INCLUDE_PATH
CMAKE_PROGRAM_PATH
CMAKE_FRAMEWORK_PATH
CMAKE_APPBUNDLE_PATH
CMAKE_IGNORE_PATH

Re: [cmake-developers] Should a module attempt to find its own dependencies?

  Hi,
 
  I don't think I've ever seen a direct answer to this question.
 
  AFAIK, yes, they should.
  FindKDE4Internal.cmake finds Qt, FindPNG.cmake finds zlib.
 
  Is it something to be decided on a case by case basis? If so, then why
  is there no general case?
 
  I can see a possible reason that it is not solvable in the general
 case
  because sometimes the behaviour of find_package can be changed by
  setting variables (eg, one might use QT_USE_QTXMLPATTERNS before
  finding Qt4).
 
  Specifically this comes up for me because I need to know whether Qt5
  modules should find their own dependencies. That is, should
 
  find_package(Qt5Gui)
 
  cause
 
  find_package(Qt5Core REQUIRED)
 
  to be called or not?
 
  I'd say yes.
  Otherwise the imported targets in Qt5Gui will depend on not yet defined
  targets from Qt5Core.
 
  The same way cmake takes care of adding the required additional
 libraries
  to the link line (like adding zlib when linking libpng), it should also
  take care of this, IMO.
 
  You should just have to state
  find_package(Foo)
  and this will get you Foo.

 That implies that

 * Qt5Gui_INCLUDE_DIRS should also contain Qt5Core_INCLUDE_DIRS

 * Qt5Gui_DEFINITIONS should contain Qt5Core_DEFINITIONS

 * Qt5Gui_COMPILE_DEFINITIONS should contain Qt5Core_COMPILE_DEFINITIONS

 Right?


 Yes, I'd say so.
 But let's wait also for some opinions from others.

Not from me... I fully agree with Alex.

Hi

AFAICS the only real problem is the EXE_EXTENSION. If you use a target
name in add_custom_command, CMake will figure out the location and name
of the actual executable on its own. By appending EXE_EXTENSION CMake
won't be able to recognize the target name any more, and just run the
command as you specified it. In this case you would need to fiddle
around with CMAKE_CFG_INTDIR, that's true. But since CMake is able to do
it automagically, I think you shouldn't try to outsmart it.

Another thing: I think you should use CMAKE_RUNTIME_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY
instead of CMAKE_LIBRARY_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY.

My 2c...

Re: [CMake] __FILE__ relative path

2011-12-28 Thread Michael Wild
If you don't want to have the full path embedded in the binary, you do.

As an addendum to my previous answer, the string after the equal sign might 
need escaped quoting.

Michael.

Re: [CMake] building on linux, extra libraries referenced

 I have this huge project that I've been building with cmake; and even

 two libraries.  On Windows, only those libraries that are actually
 used are referenced in the final output.  On Linux, with very recent
 gcc compilers, the programs end up with references to both libraries,
 and both(all 4) libraries are loaded.  I understand that this is
 probably a feature of some sort; but now do I specify for ld to only
 use the libraries that have referenced symbols in them?

Actually, it should be just the reverse. Recent versions of Linux
(Ubuntu and Debian I know of) should have --as-needed and
--no-copy-dt-needed-entries in effect by default, causing the behaviour
you want.

Re: [CMake] Determine 32 vs 64 bit cpu

 Hi all,

You don't actually care about the CPU, but the operating system (you can
install a 32-bit OS on a 64-bit machine)

 
 The one I found up to now is the following:
 
 if(CMAKE_SIZEOF_VOID_P EQUAL 8)
set(arch_64 TRUE)
 else()
 set(arch_64 FALSE)
 endif()

Yes, that's the way to go. However, remember that on Mac OS X this is
almost always the wrong thing to do when you're building universal
binaries. So, if your software is supposed to work on Mac, you will need
to take special precautions.

 
 thanks a lot and merry Christmas !

Same to you too!
