cpack -G []


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.


-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 generator 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.

--verbose,-V enable verbose output

Run cpack with verbose output.

--debug enable debug output (for CPack developers)

Run cpack with debug output (for CPack developers).

-P <package name> override/define CPACK_PACKAGE_NAME

If the package name is not specified on cpack command line thenCPack.cmake defines it as CMAKE_PROJECT_NAME

-R <package version> override/define CPACK_PACKAGE_VERSION

If version is not specified on cpack command line thenCPack.cmake defines it from CPACK_PACKAGE_VERSION_[MAJOR|MINOR|PATCH]look into CPack.cmake for detail

-B <package directory> override/define CPACK_PACKAGE_DIRECTORY

The directory where CPack will be doing its packaging work.The resulting package will be found there. Inside this directoryCPack creates ‘_CPack_Packages’ sub-directory which is theCPack temporary directory.

--vendor <vendor name> override/define CPACK_PACKAGE_VENDOR

If vendor is not specified on cpack command line (or inside CMakeLists.txt) thenCPack.cmake defines it with a default value
