cmake uniform behavior in copying files, folders, and symbolic links
Using “file(copy …)” in cmake files is different behavior than “cmake -E copy” command. Especially for linux when copying folders which have symbolic links pointing outside the folder, the “file(copy …)” command can’t copy them (problems with symbolic links, too many levels of…). However “cmake -E copy” does this job (it resolves links and copy the content)! So having consistent behavior would be nice. Also having the opportunity to preserve time stamps at copy in the “cmake -E copy” command would be nice. Furthermore an windows option to generate “dos short names” would be helpful.
Thanks in advance and best regards Frank
