33 The <application>CMake</application> package contains a modern
34 toolset used for generating Makefiles. It is a successor of the
35 auto-generated <command>configure</command> script and aims to
36 be platform- and compiler-independent. A significant user of
37 <application>CMake</application> is <application>KDE</application>
38 since version 4.

133 <!-- Please, don't remove this comment, needed if tests start to fail
134 again. If you want to investigate a problem with a given "problem1-test",
135 use <command>bin/ctest -R "problem1-test"</command> and, to omit it, use
136 <command>bin/ctest -E "problem1-test"</command>. These options can be
137 used together: <command>bin/ctest -R "problem1-test" -E
138 "problem2-test"</command>. Option -N can be used to display all
139 available tests, and you can run <command>bin/ctest</command> for a
140 sub-set of tests by using separated by spaces names or numbers as
141 options. Option -/-help can be used to show all options.-->
