How do I specify in CMAKE that binary file A is for debug and B is for release when linking, but in such a way I can still toggle between the two in VS and not have to do cmake … each time I need to switch between the two.
What do you mean by binaries?
Do you mean targets or system libraries?
target_link_libraries(consumer debug A optimized B)
See relevant docs.
This is the same thing with generator expressions and using PRIVATE to hide the dependencies.
target_link_libraries(foo PRIVATE $<$<CONFIG:Debug>: bar > $<$<CONFIG:Release>: yo > )
Are you sure the genex will survive the line breaks?
I have similar code in my own project.
should have known it was just a parameter in target_link_libraries. Was thinking I had to put in a special logic block specifying it as for release. Thanks guys.
No problem just make sure to mark the question as answered.
