We routinely work with a closed source software package, call it
Foo, that is distributed as a set of C++ headers and libraries. The install process entails extracting the tarballs containing headers and libs and compiling one wrapper library. There is no pkgconfig or cmake config file provided.
Downstream libraries have been using a
find_package(Foo) in module mode to bring in the targets from the package. This works well but has to be copied into each package that depends on Foo.
Is it possible to write a CMakeLists.txt for Foo that extracts the tarballs, compiles the wrapper lib, and produces a
FooConfig.cmake? If so, is there an existing example folks know of that I could look at.
