NAME

       cpack - CPack Command-Line Reference

SYNOPSIS

          cpack [<options>]

DESCRIPTION

       The  cpack  executable  is  the  CMake  packaging  program.   CMake projects use install()
       commands to define the contents of packages which can be generated in various  formats  by
       this  tool.   The  CPack  module greatly simplifies the creation of the input file used by
       cpack, allowing most aspects of the packaging configuration to be controlled directly from
       the CMake project’s own CMakeLists.txt files.

OPTIONS

       -G <generators>
              <generators>  is a semicolon-separated list of generator names.  cpack will iterate
              through this list and produce package(s) in that generator’s  format  according  to
              the  details  provided in the CPackConfig.cmake configuration file.  A generator is
              responsible for generating the required inputs for a particular package system  and
              invoking  that  system’s  package  creation  tools.   Possible  generator names are
              specified in the Generators section of the manual and the --help option  lists  the
              generators  supported  for  the  target platform.  If this option is not given, the
              CPACK_GENERATOR variable determines the default set  of  generators  that  will  be
              used.

       -C <Configuration>
              Specify the project configuration to be packaged (e.g. Debug, Release, etc.).  When
              the CMake project uses a multi-configuration generator  such  as  Xcode  or  Visual
              Studio,  this  option is needed to tell cpack which built executables to include in
              the package.

       -D <var>=<value>
              Set a CPack variable.  This will override any value set for <var> in the input file
              read by cpack.

       --config <configFile>
              Specify  the configuration file read by cpack to provide the packaging details.  By
              default, CPackConfig.cmake in the current directory will be used.

       --verbose,-V
              Run cpack with verbose output.  This can be used to  show  more  details  from  the
              package generation tools and is suitable for project developers.

       --debug
              Run  cpack with debug output.  This option is intended mainly for the developers of
              cpack itself and is not normally needed by project developers.

       --trace
              Put the underlying cmake scripts in trace mode.

       --trace-expand
              Put the underlying cmake scripts in expanded trace mode.

       -P <packageName>
              Override/define the value of the CPACK_PACKAGE_NAME variable  used  for  packaging.
              Any value set for this variable in the CPackConfig.cmake file will then be ignored.

       -R <packageVersion>
              Override/define the value of the CPACK_PACKAGE_VERSION variable used for packaging.
              It will override a value set in the CPackConfig.cmake  file  or  one  automatically
              computed    from   CPACK_PACKAGE_VERSION_MAJOR,   CPACK_PACKAGE_VERSION_MINOR   and
              CPACK_PACKAGE_VERSION_PATCH.

       -B <packageDirectory>
              Override/define CPACK_PACKAGE_DIRECTORY, which controls the directory  where  CPack
              will  perform its packaging work.  The resultant package(s) will be created at this
              location by default and a _CPack_Packages subdirectory will also be  created  below
              this directory to use as a working area during package creation.

       --vendor <vendorName>
              Override/define CPACK_PACKAGE_VENDOR.

       --help,-help,-usage,-h,-H,/?
