CMake is a build tool commonly used when compiling other libraries.


CMake can be loaded with:

module load compilers/cmake/3.3.0

Usage often involves:

  1. Creating and cd-ing into a dedicated build directory within a source tree then

  2. Running something like cmake -DSOME_OPTION -DANOTHER_OPTION ..


Run the following commands:

module load apps/python/2.7

./bootstrap --prefix=/usr/local/packages6/cmake/3.3.0/
--mandir=/usr/local/packages6/cmake/3.3.0/man --sphinx-man

gmake -j8

gmake install
