Get a command line to build the current project. This is mainly intended for internal use by the
build_command(<variable> [CONFIGURATION <config>] [TARGET <target>] [PROJECT_NAME <projname>] # legacy, causes warning )
Sets the given
<variable> to a command-line string of the form:
<cmake> --build . [--config <config>] [--target <target>...] [-- -i]
<cmake> is the location of the
cmake(1) command-line tool, and
<target> are the values provided to the
TARGET options, if any. The trailing
-- -i option is added for Makefile Generators if policy
CMP0061 is not set to
When invoked, this
cmake --build command line will launch the underlying build system tool.
This second signature is deprecated, but still available for backwards compatibility. Use the first signature instead.
It sets the given
<cachevariable> to a command-line string as above but without the
--target option. The
<makecommand> is ignored but should be the full path to devenv, nmake, make or one of the end user build tools for legacy invocations.
In CMake versions prior to 3.0 this command returned a command line that directly invokes the native build tool for the current generator. Their implementation of the
PROJECT_NAME option had no useful effects, so CMake now warns on use of the option.
