The default order for sorting packages found using
find_package(). It can assume one of the following values:
strverscmp(3)manual), i.e. such that contiguous digits are compared as whole numbers.
Natural sorting can be employed to return the highest version when multiple versions of the same library are found by
find_package(). For example suppose that the following libraries have been found:
NATURAL order we can select the one with the highest version number
set(CMAKE_FIND_PACKAGE_SORT_ORDER NATURAL) find_package(libX CONFIG)
The sort direction can be controlled using the
CMAKE_FIND_PACKAGE_SORT_DIRECTION variable (by default decrescent, e.g. lib-B will be tested before lib-A).
