Why CMake?

We'd like you all to use the development environment you are used to, and not force you to switch to something else -- no Linux/g++/emacs vs Windows/DevStudio vs Mac/... fights please!

To achieve this without complete chaos, we ask you to install "CMake". CMake lets us describe our programs and libraries in a cross-platform way. CMake takes care of building the makefiles or workspaces needed by whatever development environment you like to work in.

Install CMake

CMake in Windows

On Windows, the easiest way to use CMake is via its GUI.

CMake in UNIX

On UNIX CMake can be used conveniently from the command line ("cmake .") or interactively ("ccmake .").
