== Work is a on going to get this build system functional. ==


Cmake is a cross-platform build system know to work on all major platforms we support(*nix, Windows, OSX).

CMake is an extensible, open-source system that has many powerful features. Those features include:

   * Supports complex, large build environments. CMake has been proven in several large projects (KDE, ParaView, SecondLife)
   * Generates native build files (e.g., makefiles on Unix; workspaces/projects on MS Visual C++). Therefore, standard tools can be used on any platform/compiler configuration.
   * Powerful system introspection abilities including the ability to find installed include files, libraries and executables. Also the ability to test the compiler for supported features.
   * Integrated testing system called CTest.
   * Integrated packaging system called CPack.
   * Easy integration with CDash and Dart dashboard servers.
   * Powerful scripting language with simple syntax.
   * Supports in-place and out-of-place builds. Multiple compilation trees are possible from a single source tree.
   * Can be easily extended to add new features.
   * CMake is open source, under a liberal BSD license.
   * CMake operates with a cache designed to be interfaced with a graphical editor. The cache provides optional interaction to conditionally control the build process.
   * Ability to create Mac OSX Frameworks and Application Bundles.
   * Supports adding complex custom rules to the build.


How you can help.

Right now we are going through all of the directories and sub-directories in the src folder and add a CMakeLists.txt file

SIMPLE CmakeLists.txt

SET(libavoid_SRC connector.cpp geometry.cpp graph.cpp makepath.cpp polyutil.cpp region.cpp router.cpp shape.cpp static.cpp timer.cpp vertices.cpp visibility.cpp )


SIMPLE with single sub-directory Cmakelists.txt

SET(libavoid_SRC connector.cpp geometry.cpp graph.cpp makepath.cpp polyutil.cpp region.cpp router.cpp shape.cpp static.cpp timer.cpp vertices.cpp visibility.cpp

  1. Add our subdirectory sourcelist Var

${libavoid_parameter_SRC} )

  1. this adds a single sub-directory

ADD_SUBDIRECTORY(parameter)
