Deprecated since version 3.0: Use the
file(WRITE) command instead.
write_file(filename "message to write"... [APPEND])
The first argument is the file name, the rest of the arguments are messages to write. If the argument
APPEND is specified, then the message will be appended.
NOTE 2: When using
write_file the produced file cannot be used as an input to CMake (CONFIGURE_FILE, source file …) because it will lead to an infinite loop. Use
configure_file() if you want to generate input files to CMake.
