Please update CMake tutorial code


When trying CMake tutorial, Code for Step 4 needs update. Please refer to here for possible update CMake tutorial Step 4 install example is not working as expected - Stack Overflow


See vre’s answer on SO:

Your cmake is too old for the --install command syntax. --install was added to CMake in version 3.15 so you need to install a newer version


Thats right. I resolved the issue. What I’m saying is tutorial code for Step 4 needs to be updated.

This line:

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 3.10)

needs to be changed to:

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 3.15)


Thanks for the great tool

Well, the code in the CMakeLists.txt file itself works fine with 3.10. It is only the command-line interface described in the tutorial that requires 3.15+. The tutorial step 4 text already says:

Then run the install step by using the install option of the cmake command (introduced in 3.15, older versions of CMake must use make install) from the command line.
