NAME

cpack - CPack Command-Line Reference

SYNOPSIS

cpack -G <generator> [<options>]

DESCRIPTION

The “cpack” executable is the CMake packaging program. CMake-generated build trees cre‐ ated 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 gener‐ ator 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 exam‐ ple ‘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) thenC‐ Pack.cmake defines it with a default value --help,-help,-usage,-h,-H,/?
