`try_compile` ignores `INCLUDE_DIRECTORIES` in the `CHECK_INCLUDE_FILE` from the `TEST_BIG_ENDIAN`
Visual Studio 2015 Update 3
I am trying to build a library which basically build for the Linux. In the Windows the cmake produces this error:
-- Check if the system is big endian -- Searching 16 bit integer -- Looking for sys/types.h -- Looking for sys/types.h - not found -- Looking for stdint.h -- Looking for stdint.h - not found -- Looking for stddef.h -- Looking for stddef.h - not found -- Check size of unsigned short -- Check size of unsigned short - failed -- Check size of unsigned int -- Check size of unsigned int - failed -- Check size of unsigned long -- Check size of unsigned long - failed CMake Error at .../CMake/share/cmake-3.14/Modules/TestBigEndian.cmake:50 (message): no suitable type found
I have tried to dig in and found that the function
try_compile just ignores the value
CHECK_INCLUDE_FILE_C_INCLUDE_DIRS in file
CheckIncludeFile.cmake at line 101.
In the Windows I have to use the
CMAKE_REQUIRED_INCLUDES to address the Visual Studio include directories to find related include files:
cmake .. -G "Visual Studio 14 2015" "-DCMAKE_REQUIRED_INCLUDES=.../Visual Studio 14.0/VC/INCLUDE;..."
But this does not work.
