Compiling plplot without cmake

  • David Sagan

    David Sagan - 2009-01-26


    When using cmake with plplot, the generated Makefile still needs cmake to work. Does anyone know if it possible to generate a Makefile that is independent of cmake? I would like to be able to generate a "package" that I could move to various computers without worrying about whether the computers had cmake installed.

    Thanks, David Sagan

      Hi David,

      this is not possible. Even for Visual C++ or XCode Project files cmake is needed. That's not optimal but often discussed and explained on the CMake Mailing list. On the other hand installing CMake is not such a complicated task, so it should be not a big problem.
