METHODS

bin_dir
my @dirs = Alien::cmake3−>bin_dir;

List of directories that need to be added to the "PATH" in order for "cmake" to work.

my $exe = Alien::cmake3−>exe;

The name of the "cmake" executable.

HELPERS

cmake3
%{cmake3}

The name of the <cmake> executable.

SEE ALSO

Alien::Build::Plugin::Build::CMake

Alien::Build plugin for "cmake" This will automatically pull in Alien::cmake3 if you need it.

Alien::CMake

This is an older distribution that provides an alienized "cmake". It is different in these ways:
Alien::cmake3 is based on alienfile and Alien::Build

It integrates better with Aliens that are based on that technology.

Alien::cmake3 will provide version 3.0.0 or better

Alien::CMake will provide 2.x.x on some platforms where more recent binaries are not available.

Alien::cmake3 will install on platforms where there is no system
"cmake" and no binary "cmake" provided by cmake.org

It does this by building "cmake" from source.

Alien::cmake3 is preferred

In the opinion of the maintainer of both Alien::cmake3 and Alien::CMake for these reasons.
