CMake configuration options [closed]

asked 2018-04-01 14:08:31 -0500


When I open CMake to set the configuration there are a bunch of options (eg. ANT_EXECUTABLE, CV_TRACE, WITH_CUDA, and so on) like in the picture below:

Is there a desciption or documentation on what each of these do and what they are good for? I didn't manage to find anything like that yet, and sometimes the tooltips are very short and not so helpful.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you, David

Cmake will check options for you. There is no documentation for all flags. If you know cmake language you can find everything in source files
