Is it okay to use short target names such as “base” in libraries as long as they are unique to the library? The imported targets are made unique with a namespace prefix, e.g.
Background: Target names could be made more unique by also prepending the prefix, e.g.
prefix-base, however when using
install(TARGETS prefix-base) together with
install(EXPORT NAMESPACE Prefix::) I end up with the imported target name
Prefix::prefix-base. I would prefer the name
The generic name “base” on the other hand makes collisions with other projects likely when added as subdirectory. Is there another way to realize the imported target name
Prefix::base in my CMake package while keeping my target name
