Honor per-config flags in
try_compile() source-file signature.
The source file signature of the
try_compile() command uses the value of the
CMAKE_<LANG>_FLAGS variable in the test project so that the test compilation works as it would in the main project. However, CMake 3.6 and below do not also honor config-specific compiler flags such as those in the
CMAKE_<LANG>_FLAGS_DEBUG variable. CMake 3.7 and above prefer to honor config-specific compiler flags too. This policy provides compatibility for projects that do not expect config-specific compiler flags to be used.
OLD behavior of this policy is to ignore config-specific flag variables like
CMAKE_<LANG>_FLAGS_DEBUG and only use CMake’s built-in defaults for the current compiler and platform.
NEW behavior of this policy is to honor config-specific flag variabldes like
This policy was introduced in CMake version 3.7. Unlike most policies, CMake version 3.9.0 does not warn by default when this policy is not set and simply uses OLD behavior. See documentation of the
CMAKE_POLICY_WARNING_CMP0066 variable to control the warning.
OLD behavior of a policy is
deprecated by definition and may be removed in a future version of CMake.
