NAME

cpack − CPack Command-Line Reference

SYNOPSIS

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 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>

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
