install program (mostly script or user provided program). Do not use this function to install a library or a program built by your project, prefer using qi_install_target .


             
              qi_install_library([<remaining args> ...]
    [SUBFOLDER <subfolder>]
    [IF <if>]

Arguments:
  • args ( remaining ) – A list of libraries to install
  • SUBFOLDER – An optional subfolder in which to put the files.
  • IF – Condition that should be verified for the install rules to be active for example (IF WITH_ZEROMQ)

install external library. Do not use this function to install a library or a program built by your project, prefer using qi_install_target .


             
              qi_install_python([<remaining args> ...]
    [TARGETS <targets>]
    [SUBFOLDER <subfolder>]

    [RECURSE]
    [KEEP_RELATIVE_PATHS]
)

             
            
Arguments:
  • args ( remaining ) – A list of files : directories and globs on files are accepted.
  • TARGETS – A list of targets (in the common CMake meaning).
  • SUBFOLDER – An optional subfolder in which to put the files.
  • VERSION – Could be set to “3” if you want python3 instead of python2
  • RECURSE – Whether glob should be recursive.
  • KEEP_RELATIVE_PATHS – If true, relative paths will be preserved during installation. (False by default because this is NOT the standard CMake behavior).

install python module. The destination depends on the platform and will be set with regard to it:

  • on Windows: <prefix>/Lib/site-packages
  • on Unix : <prefix>/lib/python<python version>/site-packages

Note

The python version is automatically computed.

But the user can use PYTHON_INSTALL_SCHEME=... to modify the installation layout. The valid values for PYTHON_INSTALL_SCHEME are:

  • NONE : install python modules in the default libdir instead;
  • DEBIAN : install python modules in: <LIBDIR>/python<VERSION>/dist-packages (only on Linux).
