All Generators
==============
Introduction
============
A *CMake Generator* is responsible for writing the input files for
a native build system. Exactly one of the `CMake Generators`_ must be
selected for a build tree to determine what native build system is to
be used. Optionally one of the `Extra Generators`_ may be selected
as a variant of some of the `Command-Line Build Tool Generators`_ to
produce project files for an auxiliary IDE.
CMake Generators are platform-specific so each may be available only
on certain platforms. The :manual:`cmake(1)` command-line tool ``--help``
output lists available generators on the current platform. Use its ``-G``
option to specify the generator for a new build tree.
The :manual:`cmake-gui(1)` offers interactive selection of a generator
when creating a new build tree.
CMake Generators
================
Command-Line Build Tool Generators
----------------------------------
These generators support command-line build tools. In order to use them,
one must launch CMake from a command-line prompt whose environment is
already configured for the chosen compiler and build tool.

IDE Build Tool Generators
-------------------------
These generators support Integrated Development Environment (IDE)
project files. Since the IDEs configure their own environment
one may launch CMake from any environment.

Extra Generators
================
Some of the `CMake Generators`_ listed in the :manual:`cmake(1)`
command-line tool ``--help`` output may have variants that specify
an extra generator for an auxiliary IDE tool. Such generator
names have the form ``<extra-generator> - <main-generator>``.
The following extra generators are known to CMake.
