/CMake 3.19


Additional flags to be added when compiling this source file.

The COMPILE_FLAGS property, managed as a string, sets additional compiler flags used to build source files. Use COMPILE_DEFINITIONS to pass additional preprocessor definitions.

Contents of COMPILE_FLAGS may use “generator expressions” with the syntax $<...>. See the cmake-generator-expressions(7) manual for available expressions. However, Xcode does not support per-config per-source settings, so expressions that depend on the build configuration are not allowed with that generator.


This property has been superseded by the COMPILE_OPTIONS property.
