Wow! Every day I learn something new.

Yes, please. Go ahead.

Hi Petr,
just tested on windows.

More work is needed because the "default"  CMake
generator on Windows is Visual Studio 6 which may
not be working.

I shoud find a way to detect a working compiler/IDE
and/or write an autoconfigure scripts for "current" most
found windows IDE.

I'll put that on hold and switch to other task.
It would be nice if you could checkin the last
version of the script since it is definitely better.

I may do it myself if you want.

Thank you for including my script in the source.

I agree Windows users are indeed used to .exe installer.

However, I'd like to make it work on Windows too because
it's an example for me on how to try
to "autoconfigure" CMake build software in a "portable" way.

Moreover you do not get much of the Open Source spirit
if you don't get the source :=)
Nevertheless most "user" are afraid of "building" or
"compiling" because they found its a geek task.
I'd like to make this idea a little less true.
The idea would that with a single program, CMake
and a CMake script you can have your development
environment automatically setup.

PyHLA should be an easy example because it does not
have much dependencies besides CERTI.

Regarding "tar" this is a CMake -E command.
All those commands are builtin directly in the CMake executable
thus you may indeed use it on Windows too.

You may have a look at this recent CMake ML thread:
http://www.cmake.org/pipermail/cmake/2009-July/030582.html

The remaining portability issue is to automatically find
the default build tool used by CMake on the considered
platform.

I did some trick the newly attached file for that.
I'll give it a try on Windows.

Another nice script. I did commit it to the PyHLA main directory.

Win32 portability may not be an easy task in this case. Besides make, also tar is not available on Win32 platform.

Perhaps we don't need Win32 port of this script. At least my Windows users prefer the executable installer. ;-)

The attached CMake script is a proof of concept
of automatic configuration (and may be installation)
for PyHLA **from source** using CMake.

Try it using:

cd /tmp/
cmake -P PyHLA-autoconfigure.cmake

you should end up with a

/tmp/PyHLA-1.0.0-Source

configure and compiled tree, using the tarball found
on Savannah.

I did only test it on Linux, but the script should work
on Windows too (at least theorertically) if
the "make" step is replaced with the appropriate build tool.

The idea would be to give a single CMake script to
user who are in a hurry and want to install PyHLA.

The current script does not install.
