In Topic: CMake (some random questions)

  1. You're the boss of your project directory structure! It is what you say it is, and therefore there are no assumptions made. If you insist on future-proofing, you can define a variable in the top-level CMakeLists.txt that would hold the include directory for library. Then use it in another_library CMakeList.txt.
  2. Do whatever makes the overall structure clearer to you. I have no opinion either way.
  3. On Linux: probaby under /usr/shared/app or /usr/local/shared/app. On Windows: in the installation directory. I haven't the foggiest about OSX.

Why are you building it yourself? It comes with the necessary lib files for x64 and x86 - you simply need to add the libraries to your project.
Generally, you shouldn't mix runtimes. That is, it is not safe to use a library that has been linked with a MSVCRT (MS Visual C Runtime) version other then the one you're linking with yourself. And each release of VS has its own version of runtime.


If a library doesn't provide a binary version linked with your runtime, you have no choice but to build the library yourself.
