New in version 3.3.
export() command generates a file containing Imported Targets, which is suitable for use from the build directory. It is not suitable for installation because it contains absolute paths to buildsystem locations, and is particular to a single build configuration.
install(EXPORT) generates and installs files which contain Imported Targets. These files are generated with relative paths (unless the user specifies absolute paths), and are designed for multi-configuration use. See Creating Packages for more.
This policy was introduced in CMake version 3.3. CMake version 3.19.0-rc3 warns when the policy is not set and uses
OLD behavior. Use the
cmake_policy() command to set it to
OLD behavior of a policy is
deprecated by definition and may be removed in a future version of CMake.
