cpack - Packaging driver provided by CMake. USAGE
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. GENERATORS

CMake Properties - Properties supported by CMake, the Cross-Platform Makefile Generator. This is the documentation for the properties supported by CMake. Properties can have different scopes. They can either be assigned to a source file, a directory, a target or globally to CMake. By modifying the values of properties the behaviour of the build system can be customized. COMPATIBILITY COMMANDS
CMake Compatibility Listfile Commands - Obsolete commands supported by CMake for compatibility. This is the documentation for now obsolete listfile commands from previous CMake versions, which are still supported for compatibility rea- sons. You should instead use the newer, faster and shinier new commands. ;-) MODULES
