NAME cpack - Packaging driver provided by CMake.

USAGE cpack -G <generator> [options]

DESCRIPTION The "cpack" executable is the CMake packaging program. CMake-generated build trees created for projects that use the INSTALL_* commands have packaging support. This program will generate the package.

CMake is a cross-platform build system generator. Projects specify their build process with platform-independent CMake listfiles included in each directory of a source tree with the name CMakeLists.txt. Users build a project by using CMake to generate a build system for a native tool on their platform.

OPTIONS -G <generator> Use the specified generator to generate package.

CPack may support multiple native packaging systems on certain platforms. A generator is responsible for generating input files for particular system and invoking that systems. Possible gener- ator names are specified in the Generators section.

-C <Configuration> Specify the project configuration

This option specifies the configuration that the project was build with, for example Debug, Release.

-D <var>=<value> Set a CPack variable.

Set a variable that can be used by the generator.

--config <config file> Specify the config file.

Specify the config file to use to create the package. By default CPackConfig.cmake in the current directory will be used.

GENERATORS DEB Debian packages

PROPERTIES CMake Properties - Properties supported by CMake, the Cross-Platform Makefile Generator.

This is the documentation for the properties supported by CMake. Prop- erties can have different scopes. They can either be assigned to a source file, a directory, a target or globally to CMake. By modifying the values of properties the behaviour of the build system can be cus- tomized.

COMPATIBILITY COMMANDS CMake Compatibility Listfile Commands - Obsolete commands supported by CMake for compatibility.

This is the documentation for now obsolete listfile commands from pre- vious CMake versions, which are still supported for compatibility rea- sons. You should instead use the newer, faster and shinier new com- mands. ;-)
