Source via CMake or Freebsd


Recommended Posts

Hello community,

I have been inactive for a while and wanted to start again on my own project.

The project is mainly for educational purpose.

I started to update my source so I can compile it with newer compilers. (Freebsd)

For this, I allready found some helpfull topics here on this forum.

But now I wanted to know, is it better to compile your source via Freebsd or CMake?

I would appreaciate if someone could answer me that question.

 

Kind regards.

You probably misunderstood the meaning of CMake. CMake is a cross-platform tool that will generate project files for your FreeBSD platform (eg. Makefiles), but you can also use it to generate Visual Studio project if you're developing on Windows using the same configuration files.

I certainly did, thank you very much for the short summary.

Really though it was an alternative programm you can use to compile your source.

Next time I should read more precisely.

 

Thank you very much!
